All Jo Snow ever wanted was to be comfortable with their identity and at home in their body. Finally, they can begin.
Superhuman follows how Jo Snow came to terms with something they have been struggling with their whole life: their gender identity. But more importantly, it highlights a person’s journey of self-discovery and their process of learning how to finally be the person they have always felt they were inside.
"Being trans is arguably the most raw and beautiful way to exist. There is a secular feeling of resilience and strength when you get to build your entire existence." - Jo Snow
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all plans for Jo's gender affirming surgery were put on hold indefinitely.
However, on June 24, 2020, Jo received a phone call from Duke University Hospital informing them that a date for top surgery would be possible on August 31, 2020. Unsure if their insurance would be able to cover their upcoming top surgery, an online campaign launched in order to help fundraise for Jo's top surgery.
In addition to fundraising for their top surgery, Jo partnered with FORTHEGWORLS, a non-profit that assists black trans folx with finances and gender affirming surgery.
In order to promote this fundraiser, a base donation of $5 would allow people to be invited to a virtual screening of superhuman. The goal of sharing this film was to educate people on Jo's journey thus far and help explain why Jo's upcoming top surgery was such an important next step.

Through the use of social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, Jo was able to promote their GoFundMe and the screening of superhuman.
