The groundbreaking new series Her Story has released its six-episode first season on their website, herstoryshow.com, for free. The scripted new-media series follows two captivating trans women in Los Angeles who had given up on love, when suddenly, chance encounters give them hope. Violet is drawn to Allie, a reporter who approaches her for an interview while career-driven Paige meets James, the first man she’s considered opening up to in years. Will they risk letting what they are stand in the way of being loved for who they are?
Trans women in the media have long been punchlines, killers, indications of urban grit, pathetic tragedies, and dangerous sirens. Rarely have they been complex characters who laugh, struggle, and grow, who share strength in sisterhood, who seek and find love. Her Story depicts the unique, complicated, and very human women we see in queer communities, and explores how these women navigate the intersections of label identity and love.
Co-written by Jen Richards (I Am Cait) and Laura Zak (#Hashtag), directed by Sydney Freeland (Drunktown’s Finest), with Cinematography by Bérénice Eveno, Executive Produced by Eve Ensler and Produced by Katherine Fisher/Speed of Joy Productions, Her Story features predominantly LGBTQ women, on and off-screen.
