Here and Now

Hi,

‘Here and Now,’ a New Supernatural Drama From the Creator of ‘True Blood’

This is an excerpt from the article I link to below which discusses a transgender character on the upcoming new show Here and Now.

You also feature a Muslim family where the parents are comfortable with their child being transgender. Is there a story behind this?

Peter said, “If this is going to be a show about America, we need a Muslim family to be a part of this tapestry.” People are so terrified of, don’t understand, project all kinds of weird stuff onto Muslim characters — especially the way they’ve been depicted in the mainstream media. They’re never complex or nuanced. I did some research and, of course, there are trans Muslim kids. We’re so conditioned to think of Muslim families as so conservative that there’s no room for any kind of out-of-the-box expression for one’s identity — and that’s just not the case.

This is a link to a trailer for the film, the character appears about 56 seconds in.
