Heck with the lesbians and gays, Janet Jackson is supporting the transgenders! Now we know what JJ has been doing all this while out of the limelight (other than losing weight). She’s been studying transgenders! The Advocate is reporting that Miss Jackson If You’re Nasty is producing a documentary called “Truth” that will strictly be about the transgender life. So why on earth did JJ pick the transgender community? She wants people to stop the hating, y’all!
In a statement released to the media Janet says, “All people are very important to me. I’ve been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives. Truth is our small chance to ask that you try and understand someone who lives their life in a way that is a little bit different from yours, even though all of our hearts are the same. We want to stop the hate and find understanding.”
The Truth is said to be “a journey through the lives of trans- and nongendered people around the world and their epic struggle for equality.”
Production on the flick is set to begin THIS SUMMER with director Robert Jason taking the reigns. Of working with Janet, Jason said, “Janet Jackson will take us on a visually innovative, cerebral journey through the turbulent lives of transgendered people of all ages around the world and their epic struggle for equality. This film will highlight landmark mainstream stories and provide a glimpse at others that will change the gender landscape of the world forever. Just as it is hard to believe that there ever was a time when different components of society were required to use separate drinking fountains, it is as incredible that one’s gender expression remains just such a target for discrimination.”
I hope there isn’t a secret that JJ has to tell us. Ooooooo.
Will you watch this movie?
