All across America, trans youth face problems updating their government IDs and documents to reflect their true identity-- which makes it more difficult for them to vote. We know how important their voices are, so MTV and Logo have partnered up with Trans Lifeline to create a new program that helps hundreds of trans people be heard.
With the help of trans activist (and pop superstar) Kim Petras, we’re raising awareness about voter access in the LGBTQ+ community by telling the stories of three microgrant recipients who went through the process of updating their IDs. To bring this story to life, MTV partnered with Studio Moross to art direct and oversee every aspect of its beautiful animation.
If we can make people aware-- we can make a difference.
Voting and organizing are crucial ways to bring about real change. From healthcare and housing, to education and immigration reform - there are tons of issues that uniquely affect the LGBTQ+ community. So register to vote, get a friend to do the same and help us make sure every voice is counted.
Be Proud. Be Counted. Be Yourself.
