New documentary examines prejudice in Arizona

“You Racist, Sexist Bigot” is a new documentary sharing the stories of people in our state and their experience with discrimination.

Filmmakers Pita Juarez and Matty Steinkamp spent months talking to people asking them, “What is it like to be you?” Juarez and Steinkamp say they wanted to raise awareness that prejudice happens every day.

Juarez says that the most powerful and illuminating interview was of a Hispanic transgender woman who has faced a type of discrimination all her life that most of us, regardless of background, have never experienced.
