Janet Jackson to produce transgender documentary

2012-06-05 09:09

Janet Jackson has signed on as an executive producer of a documentary on the lives of transgender people around the world.

New York-based Brainchild Films announced yesterday that Jackson was working on Truth and would do some of the on-camera interviews.

The documentary begins production this summer and will focus on the lives and struggles of transgender persons.

Jackson said that she was working on the project to try to stop discrimination of the transgender community.

The 46-year-old sister of Michael Jackson has starred in several films and won five Grammy Awards.

Truth will be directed by Robert Jason, who previously directed a documentary for The Style Network on four transgender New Yorkers.

He says Truth will feature stories from North America, Europe, Australia and Latin America.
