Though a legal recognition of a third gender ranks Nepal as a leader in transgender rights, the reality of transforming from son to daughter is fraught with obstacles. Despite this, Meghna Lama has a dauntless attitude and spirited laugh - both a powerful reminder of not only what it is to be transgender in Nepal, but ultimately, what it is to be human.

I Am They

I Am They is a feature length documentary that explores non binary trans issues from the personal perspective of Fox and Owl Fisher, non binary trans activists from the UK. In the film they explore issues and challenges faced by non binary trans people, such as legal recognition, language, health care and social acceptance. Despite the film being educational and exploring social issues, it is also a love story of two people from totally different backgrounds finding each other.
