The Cover Story is a feature-length documentary which intervenes upon the consolidation of mass market progress narratives to address the impact of singularity and celebrity on the futures of trans and gender non-conforming people. Through representing stories of trans artists working on the vanguard of contemporary culture-making, The Cover Story asks what is at stake – both personally and politically – when we challenge the promotion of the ‘tipping point’ narrative. Further, it considers the enduring consequences of the stories we choose to tell in its place.

Starring Zackary Drucker (She Gone RogueTransparent), Angelica Ross (PoseHerStory), Silas Howard (By Hook or By CrookA Kid Like Jake), and Max Wolf Valerio (MaxThe Testosterone Files).
