Documentaries are a great way to come to new information, whether about life, science, or gender. They create, in the time of about an hour or more, a look into a specific subject using different methods: interviews, the following of a subject, intriguing graphics, and multiple other approaches. Recently, I have watched a couple of gender documentaries, Genderf*kation: A Gender Emancipation and Gender Redesigner.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about a trans* character on Glee, Unique. I expressed concern about how the creators were going to handle the presentation of Unique’s storyline and how realistic it would appear because despite Glee’s track record of presenting those who in other outlets are underrepresented, sometimes the verisimilitude of these storylines can be sadly lacking. I was hoping Unique’s storyline would follow the more realistic story of Santana coming out to her grandmother, who was not accepting. Unfortunately, most people who come out do not receive a welcoming reception from family, so to present the situation in such a way more realistically depicted coming out, which is one of the most daunting things people in the LGBTQ* community face. We need representation in the media to allow people from without the community to see what it is really like to be a part of the community. Creating that connection can help us in steps toward equality.
