The first 15 mins of this show contains the segment on bullying which I titled “Bullycides” for In The Life Media. It was one of the hardest videos I ever shot and edited for the program.
When I was the Series Producer for In The Life, I made the decision to make a segment (usually 10-12 mins.) to the full show because Katherine Morrison our staff producer had gotten such incredible material and access to families willing to discuss gender non-conforming children. This remains to be one of my favorite edits EVER at In The Life Media.
Eight families with transgender and gender non-conforming children ranging in ages from 5 to 25 share their stories. With the healthy development of their children at stake, parents must confront binary perceptions of gender, widespread transphobia and controversial parenting decisions.
One of my favorite interviews for In The Life Media last year, was with this guy, Zach Wahls…
Zach Wahls joins In The Life Media to discuss his experience as a child of two moms, how he’s adjusting to life in the spotlight, and his new book, “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength and What Makes a Family.”
This is an excellent example of a featured segment we had on In The Life Media, I directed this awesome pairing!
America’s Next Top Model’s first transgender contestant, Isis King, sits down with People.com staff editor and transgender advocate, Janet Mock, for a conversation about representations of transgender people in media.
I produced this video for In The Life Media as a Farewell Episode:
At a time when lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people were virtually invisible in media, IN THE LIFE became the first to bring real stories, struggles and issues about the LGBT experience into living rooms across the country. In our final episode, we look back at highlights from our 20 years on public television.
I produced this for In The Life Media’s to Kick off the 2012 Season, Todd Cross was a co-producer.
