Janet Jackson Producing Documentary On Transgender People

Janet is set to executive produce a documentary that aims to "stop the hate and find understanding" toward transgender people. Directed by Robert Jason the film, entitled Truth will explore "a journey through the lives of trans- and nongendered people around the world and their epic struggle for equality."

"All people are very important to me," Jackson says in a statement released to the media. "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."

Truth is expected to begin production this summer.
