Monika Treut
Documentary : 88' / Community, Trans

Twenty-five years after Gendernauts, her landmark documentary about the transgender movement in San Francisco, Monika Treut seeks out the pioneers of that time. What has changed? Genderation delineates how the gendernauts have grown into their identities over the years, developed their careers and started families, and how their energy continues to have an impact today. Their activism has changed over time, but the struggles continue.
