Teaming up with distribution partner Minus18, Unerased is scheduled to drop on Instagram, where it aims to spark conversations and challenge perceptions. 

Straying away from flashy production setups, Unerased chooses to lean on the simplicity of mobile phone cameras.

The result is a series of 17 short episodes, scheduled for release every Monday and Friday, offering viewers an intimate look into the everyday experiences, challenges, and triumphs of these remarkable young individuals.

The collaboration between Unerased and Minus18 is more than a business venture; it’s a commitment to amplifying the voices of LGBTQIA+ youth.

 Adrian Murdoch, Minus18 Strategic Relationships Lead, highlights the resonance of this partnership, stating, “At Minus18, elevating LGBTQIA+ young voices is at our core, making our collaboration with Unerased both essential and impactful.”

With ages ranging from 16 to 18, the cast brings diversity not only in their identities but also in their geographic backgrounds.

Each episode of Unerased offers a three-to-four-minute window into the lives of these individuals, providing an unvarnished look at their personal journeys.

The series opens with Episode 1, accompanied by the melodic strains of G-Flip’s “You & I,” setting the tone for an emotive exploration.

Behind the scenes, director and writer AP Pobjoy, along with executive producer Rob Innes and producer Bonny Scott, embarked on a mission to create a platform for young trans voices.

This endeavour was driven by the desire to counter the debates that often surround transgender lives.

The result is a series that empowers its subjects to share their stories, warts and all, through their own lenses.

Unerased doesn’t seek to paint a one-dimensional picture; it captures both the challenges and the moments of joy, hope, and everyday life that transcend identity.

The series seeks to break down assumptions and offer viewers new perspectives that might be unfamiliar.

Supported by Transgender Victoria and Project RockIt, the production places a strong emphasis on the well-being of its cast and its potential impact.

In the end, Unerased isn’t just about transgender narratives; it’s about embracing authenticity and understanding.

As the series debuts, it aspires to reach all young individuals, encouraging them to embrace their true selves.

With its unfiltered lens and the power of personal storytelling, Unerased invites us all to step into the shoes of its young protagonists and see the world from their perspectives.
