Youth, Interrupted: The Heartbreaking, Hidden Lives of Transgender Teens

After meeting with transgender teens across America, I saw how anti-transgender "bathroom bills" have tragically disrupted an entire generation.

"Youth, Interrupted" is a series on trans teens in the United States whose lives have been dramatically disrupted by anti-trans "bathroom bills" and other political battles. Watch and read more from the series here.

Last month, I travelled across the country to meet three transgender teenagers whose lives were upturned by spitfire political debates around bathroom access. Today, Broadly is releasing the result of that journey. Youth, Interrupted is a three-part documentary series that intimately tells their stories, and also includes profiles and portraits of other cis and trans people affected by the ongoing political battle.

Our intention is to pivot the transgender "bathroom bill" debate away from red herring arguments about privacy and predators, and instead toward the truth: Anti-transgender legislation is an obvious violation of civil rights, and when these laws and policies are put in practice they severely disrupt the lives of trans kids and their families.
