Last fall we traveled to Virginia to film during the final hours of trans woman Danica Roem's historic political campaign. The documentary we made follows Roem and her team of vounteers and campaign staff as they make a final stride toward election. And Roem worked hard until the end; On November 8th, 2017, in the bitter cold rain, Roem stood outside of polling stations.
Hours later she learned that she'd made history, becoming the first openly trans woman to be elected and seated in a state legislature. Today, we're thrilled to announce that Broadly's documentary, Inside Danica Roem's Historic Victory, or has been nominated for a Webby Award for best Film & Video—News & Politics!
