Janet Jackson, Transgender Documentary: Singer to Executive Produce ‘Truth’

This summer, Janet Jackson will begin work on “Truth,” a documentary about the transgender community. The pop star has signed on as executive producer, and she’ll also handle on-camera interviews with those individuals featured in the film.

“All people are very important to me,” Jackson said in a statement. “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.”

“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,” said director Robert Jason. “This film will highlight landmark mainstream stories and provide a glimpse at others that will change the gender landscape of the world forever.”

Jackson’s foray into film production follows her hit Number Ones world tour and best-selling book True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself.
