Born This Way is a mini-documentary that explores the ideas and misconceptions regarding gender and specifically transgender that are common in everyday society.
The Born This Way Youtube page states: “Everyone has a gender; it is a thing affects everything of our lives. It affects how we act like and look like every day. However, have you ever thought about what is gender? Gender is the thing that describes the characteristics that a society or culture delineates as masculine or feminine. Today, most of the countries define gender base on the physical and genetic sexuality at birth. There is at least one transgender person, whose self-gender identity is different from the assigned gender sex at birth, in each 100 people. Under the rules of our society, there are at least 70 million people living in the world without their identity. Therefore, we should redefine the definition of gender to include transgender people and not only base on the physical sexuality at birth.”
Born This Way was published on June 6th, 2012. It was produced, directed and edited by Leo Pang.
