Paperback, pp. Recently, while searching for works on transgender, I found humanities studies conducted over the last ten years. Unfortunately, nearly 90 per cent of these focused on North American and European transgender, with much of them springing from a psychopathology framework, foisting relatively superficial methods of study upon large samples and seeking to make grand generalisations.
The film is an intimate portrait of Hina, a mahu transgender woman and cultural legend in Hawaii who teaches Hawaiian language, history, and culture. How did you first learn about Hina, and what made you want to make a film about her? We spent producing and then conducting an extensive grassroots community engagement tour with our first PBS documentary, Out in the Silencewhich focused on the discrimination and brutality faced by a teenager who came out as gay at his small town high school in Pennsylvania.
I got this book after meeting one of the women profiled in it I am glad I did. The experiences of transgendered people in Hawaii are different from those on the mainland, but at the same time the similarities tie everything together. Taking this to the meetup today -- loaning to skeeterbess.

Above all else, I am Kanaka. Kanaka is the term for native Hawaiians. And what does it mean to be mahu?

Okay but Los Santos Pride is absolutely sponsored by the Fakes right? Oh the Fakes of course go all out.

We spoke with Wilson about this film, including the more enlightened approach to gender diversity in indigenous peoples and the need to connect with ancient cultures.
Whatever your postcard tropical idyll might be — a paradise of white sandy beaches, emerald cliffs and azure seas; of falsetto-voiced ukulele strummers, bare-shouldered hula dancers and sun-bronzed surfers — it exists somewhere on these islands. But beyond the frame-edges of that magical postcard is a startlingly different version of Hawaii, a real place where a multicultural mixed plate of everyday people work and live. Hawaii may be a Polynesian paradise, but it's one with shopping malls, landfills and industrial parks, cookie-cutter housing developments and sprawling military bases.
The film encourages us to question the way in which gender is constructed and played out in our own cultural traditions, and how this Hawaiian construct challenges modern understandings of gender. Hina is portrayed as a strong and capable person, who has a full and culturally relevant understanding of self and gender. They were what we would term transgender, people whose gender role as socially prescribed was different from their genetically determined sex. They were seen as balanced beings who expressed their masculinity and femininity with ease and freedom.
