We Exist: Beyond the Binary is a documentary that looks at the construct of gender binary. We Exist offers a first-hand account of what it is like to exist other than male or female, primarily through the eyes of Lauren Lubin, a nonbinary athlete and activist. Follow Lauren’s life from childhood to the present, from a promising Division I sports career, to living in the rainforest, to top surgery, to now. In addition, We Exist includes interviews with nonbinary activists Tyler Ford, Kristen Russo, and Lauren Lubin, as well as Dr. Athony Vivasis (Clinical Director of Medical Services at Callen Lorde Community Health Center) and Dr. Charles Garramone, Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon at The Garramone Center.
We Exist is a compelling, informative documentary addressing one of the foremost issues of the day. Designed with education in mind, We Exist interviews nonbinary individuals, activists and doctors to weigh in on subjects ranging from the gender binary, social constructs, pronouns, access, and safety, while telling the riveting story of Lauren Lubin. At 55 minutes, including educational animations within the film as well as a free study guide, We Exist is an excellent option to explore the gender binary in the classroom or a larger venue.
