Casting search for transgender women for the lead in upcoming film

Film title: AFTER THE DATE
SAG-AFTRA Student Film Agreement
Temple University Graduate Thesis

AFTER THE DATE is a romance genre short film. The story develops a romance between a heterosexual, cisgender man and a transgender woman, and the film reveals how oppression can bring two people together, rather than tear them apart.

The film shows a happy and healthy romance between a straight man, NATE, and a transgender woman, EMMA. Her transgender status is not an issue to Nate. However, they deal with a small incident of police harassment. She is an amateur photographer, and she is technically trespassing at the Divine Lorraine to take a few photographs. A cop IDs her, and finds that she has not updated the gender on her license. The cop harasses her, and later, the couple make a complaint at the police station. The conflict gets out of hand, and Nate is arrested for disorderly conduct.

The film addresses contemporary themes which affect transgender women, such as romantic relationships between transgender women and heterosexual men, and the marginalization of transgender people.
