June, or the month of pride (as it is considered a community), as a community we celebrate as a dedicated community, so it is not surprising that many organizations are broadcasting films, series and documentaries that highlight the LGBTIQ + community. . For this month, Hulu begins the celebration with a controversial and illustrated film. Michael Burnett’s game considers the changing 2019 documentary of transgender athletes and their time in high school sports.
The film follows three teenage high school athletes at different stages in their personal and professional lives. One of those focused on life is Mac Begus, a trans teenager who presents himself as a boy. In the women’s wrestling division, he won the Texas State Championship and won the title. New Hampshire trans teen skier Sarah Rose Hackman is also making headlines as a trans youth activist and policy maker. The final trans teen athlete is Andrea Earwood. Andaraya is a Connecticut track star who publicly competes on the women’s track team. The lives of these three teens are recorded in a way that highlights their joys, competencies, and even hardships.
One of the most influential aspects of the documentary is that it tries to give a more objective perspective. These multiple perspectives help to find most of the arguments in the debates in favor of rival trans people in sport. When interviewing people from different groups for their views on the subject, how this perspective influences how to be discussed with real people never fails to capture the camera. It allows them to see how their views can affect those who are just trying to be who they are and play their favorite sport.
Changing the game has a strong message behind its cinematography. It combines written words, music, interviews with local personalities, and helpful information to help listeners gain a deeper understanding of the controversy behind transgender youth playing on sports teams. One of the pieces of information that is scattered is “the policy for transgender high school athletes is different than the state.”
The film allows these trans teens to express their own stories from their own perspectives. A more interesting aspect of the documentary is that it shows members of conservative families. The presence of conservative relatives in many young trans families does not obscure this picture, but rather illuminates them and paints a picture of conciseness on firmly established and preconceived arguments. Perhaps that is why it is so interesting to see it from beginning to end. There are examples in the film where parents or guardians will take note of your views and political cooperation. One of them is Mac Biggs’s grandmother, Nancy, who came out of the closet and is known as “a tough Republican.” However, despite this identity of hers, she has expressed love and acceptance. In the documentary it is like a scene, but there are many more in which parents can identify how they still promote love and acceptance of the LGBT community.
The documentary does not give a romantic aspect or fully highlight the great aspects of life in whispers. It gets real and personal with every young trans girl that changes and it gets real with how versatile and complex trans life can be. Although family members and friends think the same, it would be ideal, not how life works. By allowing conservatives to see here, it allows us to start conversations about sports and how people show them in the states and why LGBTQIA + children have to fight for human rights when we cannot judge everyone equally.
The wonderful team that helped make this documentary as it is today deserves special thanks for their accomplishments and for bringing these kinds of daring stories to the public’s attention. Director Michael Burnett held many positions related to the film and was instrumental in bringing these stories together. This, of course, would not have been possible without his photographer Turner Jumanville and author Amanda Griffin, Michael Mahafi. Credit for music composition goes to Tyler Strickland. Strickland’s work has a resonant quality that makes him a perfect complement to this documentary. All of these talented people bring together their special skill set for an impressive narrative on who can play on a sports team.
As powerful and continuous as this documentary is, the goal is to give people who watch it the feeling of seeing more people besides the label. The difficulties of trans life and their struggles in the documentary are still gaining acceptance in the field of sports.
