Janet Jackson is set for an executive producing role on an upcoming transgender documentary, according to New York-based Brainchild Films. Truth will follow various stories of transgender people ranging from North and Latin America to Europe and Australia. Jackson is already working on the film, and will conduct some on-camera interviews for the documentary.

"I've been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives. Truth is our small chance to ask that you try and understand someone who lives their life in a way that is a little bit different from yours, even though all of our hearts are the same," said Jackson. "We want to stop the hate and find understanding."

Robert Jason will direct Truth, which will start production this summer. This will be Jackson's first role as executive producer.
