Her (2013) | Lost in Translation (2003)
agh this just blows my mind/excites me
this is like, exactly what I said after I saw Her the first time. It’s like LiT was Sofia’s movie about what it was like to be married to Spike and Her is Spike’s examination of his own failure as a husband.
I will respect these posters forever because they put a genderfluid/genderqueer/whatever person. That is normally so overlooked.
This campaign has a lot of awesome stuff going for it.
1) Transgender PoC make up about half the face of the campaign.
2) There is a genderqueer person (!!) and their caption respectfully uses “person” instead of man or woman.
3) Plus-sized trans* people for the win!
4) Finally a campaign explicitly for trans* people that emphasizes our deserving respect and courtesy.
5) The transgender women and men are included in “any woman/man” which is huge because it emphasizes that trans* women and men are women and men too; it leaves no room for argument and doesn’t turn it into a debate about genitals.
6) Emphasis on our being a part of the communities we live in. We aren’t any different than anyone else.
I really love the DC Transgender Respect campaign and I wish more states and cities would launch stuff like this!
Bravo, DC. I hope this begins a widespread campaign. People shouldn’t be harassed for who they are EVER.
All right guys, let’s see one of these canpaigns for all 50 states too. Ready…GO!
The national politicians may suck, but its things like this that make me love DC
