Episode 32 Transparency Project: Stories of Transgenders in NC
 In reflection of the ongoing political tension for transgender rights, such as the House Bill 2 controversy in North Carolina, and the President’s Executive Order to no longer accept transgender recruits into the U.S. Military, the interest for a production in support of the trans community has been expressed to the founder of JTR Presents. Therefore, the brand is arranging a collaboration between the trans and creative communities to address this issue. JTR Presents is producing an exhibition, currently titled “The Transparency Project” to empower trans by using the Arts as a platform for them to tell their individual, and collective, stories and regain their own agency. The hope for this is to grant the community the power and platform to tell their own story in their own way using the Arts.
