Her Story stars transgender activist Jen Richards – who is currently featured in E!’s I am Cait – accomplished trans entrepreneur, and actor Angelica Ross and writer/actor Laura Zak, star of the hit web series #Hashtag.

Jen Richards and Laura Zak are also co-writers on the series.

Her Story centres around two trans women in Los Angeles who have given up on love, when suddenly chance encounters give them hope. Violet (Jen Richards) is drawn to Allie (Laura Zak), a reporter who approaches her for an interview, while career-driven Paige (Angelica Ross) meets James (Christian Ochoa), the first man she’s considered opening up to in years.

Richards told People magazine, which debuted the trailer on its site

The visibility and representation [of the trans community] has become a beacon of hope and possibility for a generation who didn’t have that prior. We’ve had an on-going conversation about how we can accentuate the humanity of these characters. That’s what will make it relatable to members outside the LGBT community.”

Producer Katherine Fisher adds,

Her Story depicts the unique, complicated, and very human women we see in queer communities, and explores how these women navigate the intersections of label identity and love. With this project we have the opportunity to positively shift cultural perceptions of women in the trans and queer communities. We invite you to join us in helping to make visible the lives of women who too often are made invisible.”

Both behind and in front of the camera, Her Story tells the stories of trans and queer individuals. What makes the show unique is the show is created by both trans and queer individuals, working together to create high-quality, universally relatable LGBTQ content.

Principal photography concluded in May and the project is currently in post-production. Speed of Joy Productions launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on August 2nd to help fund post-production and marketing.
Her Story will be released in Fall 2015. Details on the series’ distribution will be announced at a later date. More information on the cast and crew can be found at the official website
