University lecturer highlights resilience of the trans community

​A new documentary series, by university lecturer Lindsey Dryden, is available to stream.

All three episodes of ‘Trans in America’, produced by Lindsey, can be seen exclusively on Conde Nast’s LGBTQ+ platform, ‘Them’.

The short documentary series is an intimate portrait of three transgender individuals as they battle for their civil rights in the USA. The three films reveal the daily impact of discrimination on three families as they battle with bathroom bills, vulnerability in employment and housing, and the aftermath of incarceration, in Texas, Illinois and Georgia. 

Each film in the series is directed by an LGBTQ+ filmmaker, produced by an inclusive and majority-LGBTQ+ production team led by Lindsey Dryden at Little By Little Films, and informed by a panel of transgender Advisors.

Producer Lindsey Dryden is an award-winning director and Lecturer in Film Production at the University  and mentors emerging filmmakers. Based in Stroud, she is the founder of ‘Little by Little Films’, which specialise in projects led by LGBTQ people, women and individuals with unconventional experiences of the body. She produced Academy Award shortlisted Unrest (Sundance, 2017) and her work has been released theatrically, featured in Vogue and Elle, broadcast on Netflix, PBS and BBC, won awards worldwide, and screened at 50+ festivals.

All episodes of ‘Trans in America’ will be released on 24 October, on Conde Nast’s ‘Them’ website.
