The Making of Chase Humes

The Making of Chase Humes

"The Making of Chase Humes", is a 5 minute documentary about a female-to-male transgender student, who just wants to be accepted and treated as a normal person. He talks about how the current political climate makes him fear for his future, as well as how people don't take trans-gendered people seriously despite the high suicide rates; most his family isn't very supportive despite all him asking for is acceptance. Due to his coming out he lost friends, but he goes on to say he gained his best friend from coming out. To wrap the film up he sends out a message to everyone who is going through a similar experience by telling them that all the fighting for rights is worth it in the end.
