Of 30 transgender, ordained ministers in the United States, six are in North Carolina. They all battle narrow-mindedness within the religious community, their families, and NC natives. In order to live their authentic selves, some have thrown their loved ones into personal identity crises. They preach bravely despite the danger they face as transgender persons living in the South. As transgender ministers, they also navigate their way through local, state, and national governing bodies who decide what it means to be a human being. Their journeys have challenged the filmmakers to re-evaluate their own religious beliefs. (Proper Pronouns is being screened as a work in progress.)

Q & A with Meg Daniels, Dawn Flynn, Liam Hooper, Debra Hopkins and Mykal Shannon, moderated by Angela Mazaris
