In the past year, trans rights activists have been busy fighting to change the way that US government data is collected, analyzed and disseminated.
In the process, they’ve also managed to raise awareness about trans people’s lives and experiences.
In a new documentary called Trans Men in the USA: America’s Transgender Men, which premiered at SXSW Interactive this past weekend, the film’s creators, Alex Haley and Josh Kriegman, spoke to a diverse group of trans men who have participated in the American trans movement, from the people who were on the frontlines to the people in the middle.
In the documentary, Kriegmann and Haley delve into the lives of trans Americans and highlight some of the issues that have arisen around the trans community in recent years.
The film includes clips from trans activist organizations such as Trans Lifeline and the Transgender Law Center, as well as clips from Trans America, an organization that tracks the movement, and Trans People, a project that seeks to provide support and resources to trans people.
“We wanted to show the story of trans American men, so that’s why we brought the trans people into the conversation,” Kriegmman said.
Kriegman and Haley also interviewed some of those who’ve been in the media, including former President Barack Obama, President Trump, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Attorney General Sally Yates, and former FBI Director James Comey.
Some of the highlights include:The first trans woman to serve as president of the United States was Janet Jackson, who was diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 1982.
In 1993, she transitioned from male to female.
In 1999, the American government made headlines when it announced it was making public data on trans people from birth through puberty, a process that is often not tracked.
The data showed that over one-third of trans people were diagnosed with mental health conditions.
But for trans men, this data is less common.
According to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, trans men face significantly higher rates of mental health issues than cisgender men.
In 2014, a survey found that trans men were more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression than cis men.
The survey also found that more than half of transmen were homeless, compared to one-fifth of cisgender people.
In a 2015 article, researchers at the University of Texas School of Public Health reported that the mental health problems of trans individuals were exacerbated by violence.
Trans men are also more likely than cis people to have been arrested, which is something that is extremely common among trans people, Krugman said, and also is a problem that has been exacerbated by the trans-inclusive bathrooms in schools.
These issues are highlighted in the documentary as well, including the fact that trans people are also disproportionately incarcerated.
Many of the subjects in the film are living in the states where the federal government has not made any efforts to track the health and well-being of trans citizens.
There are also some issues that are not covered in the narrative.
In 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled that states are allowed to opt out of the American Medical Association’s (AMA) position that trans Americans are “biological males.”
This ruling is seen as a significant victory for trans people in that it is a major step towards ending transphobia.
Despite these issues, Kribling said that the American people can expect to see more stories in the coming months that reflect trans people and the history of trans rights in the country.

It’s a good sign when trans people get to see a more nuanced representation of themselves.”
