Thursday Documentary

Thursday 19 September at 7.30pm Channel 013

When you're transgender and latin-x, life as a double minority often means living with a target on your back. For many facing extreme violence and discrimination in their home countries, migration to the United States represents a chance to redeem their identity and live life free from prosecution. 
But upon arriving in the U.S., instead, trans migrants often find a dangerous life plagued by the threat of detention and continued discrimination. VICE goes to Arizona and Los Angeles to meet one of the most vulnerable populations in America, and the trans women already living in the U.S. working hard to create sanctuary for them.

 

Part of the Thursday documentary line up:

  • 5 September at 7.30pm: Tijuana: A Mexican Dream
  • 12 September at 7.30pm: The Gay Professional Skateboarder
  • 19 September at 7.30pm: Transgender Asylum Seeker
