My Genderation is an ongoing film project celebrating trans lives and trans experiences. My Genderation was co-created by Fox Fisher and Lewis Hancox in 2011 after they took part in the mainstream documentary My Transsexual Summer. In 2016 we were joined by Owl (Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir) who is Fox's partner in love and crime.

Since My Genderation started, we have released over 60+ short films, documentaries and sketches on trans issues. What makes My Genderation unique is that it's an initiative started by trans people aimed to make films about other trans people. 

By supporting us, you support all of our endeavors in creating films about trans people and trans lives that will either be released on our social media channels. Up until now, most of our films have been made on a budget of nothing (or very little) and yet we've been able to create professional content that has been endorsed by the BBC, C4 and NHS (Choices & E-Learning).

After 7 years of experience we are confident that we can create high quality content, and with your help we can afford better equipment and dedicate more time into creating content for our contributors and supporters. The content we make will wary from documentaries, to interviews, reporting from big trans related events, to fictional films, to sketches or possibly music videos - but all of them will carry a message that will continue to raise awareness of trans lives and trans experiences.  

Our mission is to continue to create engaging films made with integrity and with our vision. Often films made about trans people are made by creators that are not trans themselves which often leads to tired tropes and misconceptions that fuel stigma and prejudice against trans people. We aim to create films which accurately represents trans people and their realities. We have filmed with trans people from all over the world and will continue to make content with your help. 

Our films are entirely created by trans people about other trans people, for a much wider audience. Our insight and understanding allows us to create engaging narratives and storylines, that allows people to connect and empathise with individual journeys and topics. 

So far, My Genderation films have been shown in schools, universities, film festivals and is endorsed by the BBC through their ‘Fresh’ documentaries initiative.
We’ve also created 8 short films for Channel 4, on All4 as My Trans Story.
