While I’ll withhold judgment on the actual program until/unless I’m able to watch it, I’m not thrilled seeing that the opening clip is of an interview with a cisheterosexual white man who might not have even been the originator of the “genderbread person” in the first place. I understand that actual trans people are interviewed in the bulk of the show, but opening with a cishet person’s framing of gender, while perhaps making the message more palatable to the mainstream viewer, immediately prioritizes cis voices over those the documentary purports to cover.
