The bravest thing to do is to be yourself…
About The Film
WE EXIST follows the life of Lauren, a person who identifies as “gender neutral,*” as well as the life of others who exist outside the binary gender structure of female and male. Take an intimate journey through the physical, emotional, and spiritual changes Lauren and others undergoes just to be themselves.
See how simple things like choosing which public restroom (or changing room) to use is a challenge and part of every day life.
This positive and empowering film will highlight what individuals must go through to fulfill their ultimate life-long dream: to feel comfortable and natural in their own skin, and as well as in society. Intimately travel with Lauren and others through their extraordinary journeys and witness the beautiful lives of gender diverse individuals.
After hearing “our truth”, you will never look at gender the same way.
Please note that there are gender neutral pronouns, such as hir/ze. These will be addressed in the film.
*Please also note: There is little consensus over the difference between terms such as agender, genderless, non-gender, gender neutral and neutrois. These terms are often used interchangeably or defined differently by individual writers in ways that do not necessarily match the self definitions of others using those terms.
Aren’t There Only Two Genders?
We have been conditioned to only recognize two genders: male and female (this is known as the gender binary). There are, in fact, many more genders. There are a spectrum of various gender expressions that exist beyond the binary.
Everything in life exists on a fluid continuum… and gender is no exception.
