Janet Jackson to produce transgender documentary
Pop star Janet Jackson has signed on to executive produce a documentary about transgendered people. Entitled Truth, the film will be directed by Robert Jason and begin production this summer.
"I've been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives. Truth is our small chance to ask that you try and understand someone who lives their life in a way that is a little bit different from yours, even though all of our hearts are the same," Jackson said in a statement. "We want to stop the hate and find understanding."
The film will follow the lives of transgendered and non-gendered people living in North and Latin America, Europe and Australia as they struggle for equal rights. In addition to the exec producer role, Jackson will also conduct on-camera interviews for the film.
