Empowering documentary

My Trans American Road Trip follows the journey of narrator Abigail Austen, as she travels around America exploring different views upon the LGBT community and the issue they face with the 'Bathroom Bill'.

Our trans-gendered host Abigail Austen enhances the audiences' knowledge of the bathroom bill through travelling to different states, and interviewing local American's views upon this law. For instance North Carolina was the first state to pass the proposed bathroom bill - the law which stated that "transgender individuals have to use the gender restroom of the gender in which they were born and is published on their birth certificate".

The United States is known as 'the land of the free' but whilst watching this documentary, I questioned whether this was actually a true representation of America. Many people within Abigail's journey questioned her decision, as well as verbally hating on the LGBT community- which I believe made me look at Abigail with much respect and honour. Abigail Austen was able to take on criticism and judgement throughout the filming of the documentary, whilst accepting and listening to what others were saying- and yet by the end still remains as a strong, confident and empowering individual.
