Janet Jackson to Exec Produce Doc About Transgender Lives

Leeeerve her! Janet Jackson has announced that she’ll be the Executive Producer on the documentary Truth, which will explore the lives and struggles of the transgendered community. And we thought she couldn’t get any fiercer.

In a statement released today, the pop diva said:

“All people are very important to me. I’ve been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives. Truth is our small chance to ask that you try and understand someone who lives their life in a way that is a little bit different from yours, even though all of our hearts are the same. We want to stop the hate and find understanding.”

Preach! Production is slated to begin this summer, lead by director Robert Jason:

“Janet Jackson will take us on a visually innovative, cerebral journey through the turbulent lives of transgendered people of all ages around the world and their epic struggle for equality. This film will highlight landmark mainstream stories and provide a glimpse at others that will change the gender landscape of the world forever. Just as it is hard to believe that there ever was a time when different components of society were required to use separate drinking fountains, it is as incredible that one’s gender expression remains just such a target for discrimination.”

With all the hate we’re hearing about today, it’s heartwarming to hear a whole lotta love.
