Here’s how to watch the HBO documentary Transhood online.

Audience Award for Best Feature at the AFI DOCS awards this year went to the compelling documentary Transhood, which is set to air on HBO. The incredibly moving nonfiction motion picture chronicles growing up trans in Kansas by following four different individuals over a span of five years.

These four kids go through the same things most people their age experience. Things like sibling rivalry, high school life, parental issues, and puppy love are all part of their lives. But Transhood lifts the veil to reveal the other challenges that face them like threats of violence, verbal abuse, and body dysmorphia, just to name a few.

Living in a place like the Bible belt doesn’t make things any easier for the subjects of the HBO documentary. The area isn’t exactly known for its progressive behavior. Along with these illuminating moments, Transhood also raises some controversial questions. Given the intriguing premise and essential information; this is definitely one doc everyone shouldn’t sleep on.

Below is all the information you need to watch Transhood online.

Here is how HBO officially describes the series:

"Filmed over five years in Kansas City, this documentary follows four kids – beginning at ages 4, 9, 12, and 15 – as they redefine “coming of age.” These kids and their families reveal intimate realities of how gender is re-shaping the family next door in a never-before-told chronicling of growing up transgender in the heartland. The film is a nuanced examination of how families tussle, transform, and sometimes find unexpected purpose in their identities as transgender families. Lighthearted and deeply moving, this story teaches us something new about being human."
