Published: Thursday 11th Jun 2020 by Rashad

Netflix continues its bid to shine light on diverse voices as evidenced by the forthcoming film, ‘Disclosure.’

Executive produced by and featuring EMMY-winning actress Laverne Cox, the documentary is designed to honor and track the history of visibility of trans characters and storytelling in media.

“I think, for a very long time, the ways in which trans people have been represented on screen have suggested that we’re not real, have suggested that we’re mentally ill, that we don’t exist,” Cox says in the documentary. “And yet here I am, yet here we are, and we’ve always been here.”

Highlighted with appearances from ‘Matrix co-director Lilly Wachowski, ‘Pose’ star MJ Rodriguez, ‘Hustlers star Trace Lysette, and many others, look inside for the official trailer to the Sam Feder-directed ‘Disclosure’:

Ahead of its June 19 premiere, director Feder spoke on the importance of the documentary.

“We want audiences to enjoy the nostalgia of archival clips while sitting with complicated feelings,” the filmmaker said. “We do not want to tell anyone how or what to think. Rather, ask how can we be critically engaged with problematic material, knowing that change happens over time, is not linear, and often people don’t know what they don’t know.”
