With the often dismal, twisted portrayal of transgender people in Hollywood and on TV as its starting point, the utterly enlightening “Disclosure” tells a story full of harmful stereotypes, examining how the collective narrative and consequently our perception of trans people was shaped. Laverne Cox (“Orange Is the New Black”), Lilly Wachowski (“The Matrix”), MJ Rodriguez (“Pose”) and Jamie Clayton (“Sense8”) among others, share personal experiences and reactions, in a revolutionary film about how we perceive trans people.

‘Disclosure’s’ often sad, distorting mirror of trans representation in Hollywood and American television is the starting point to tell a story filled with harmful stereotypes, which explores how collective narration and our views about trans people were formed. While trans people visibility increases, signifying probably the beginning of a positive social change, the violence against them goes on, making their participation in the cultural narration formation even more urgent. Laverne Cox (‘Orange is the New Black’), Lilly Wachowski (‘The Matrix’), Mj Rodriguez (‘Pose’) and Jamie Clayton (‘Sense8’), among others, share valuable personal experience and reactions in a revolutionary film about how we view and understand trans people.
