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.
