A short and sweet story about the queer community and dating as a transgender woman. I tapped episode 1 up to the Chromecast and realized after the ten minute video that I’d need to find the six episode season 1 playlist so they can all just go on to the next. An hour later I was quite pleased with the quality and happy with the story. Her Story and the movie Carol were both nice, light and beautiful love stories for the queer community and I’m so happy to see this trend.
Her Story premiered on YouTube on January 18th and two weeks later has 71,800 views on episode one and 39,000 on the episode 6.
The success of Her Story is that the story is told with the benefit of participation. There is no need for a token transgender perspective because there are a multitude of experiences to draw from. The result is a nuanced, balanced and artistic authenticity that is uplifting and sweet.
