MORE THAN T tells the illuminating and empowering stories of transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals. Through Howard's lens, the film shines a light on their multidimensional lives and the unique experiences that challenge and enrich their individuality and their gender identities. In MORE THAN T, these members of the community share their passions, hopes for the future and life's work and how they battle the issues faced by the trans community at large. Filmed in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., the film highlights the intersectionality and diversity of human beings who refuse to be defined by the label of transgender. Since 1994, M·A·C Cosmetics has given more than $450 million to protect and support the LGBT community and others - More than T is the latest project in the brand's storied history that shines a light on the beauty of all people.
