About

The Transketeers is the filmmaking and advocacy collective of Bart Peters, Jonah Lamers and Chris Rijksen. Three transmen based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, who joined forces in 2014 to make their first project Trans*Tapes. After successfully finishing the Trans*Tapes the Transketeers have since then produced a range of audiovisual productions, and have been active speakers in public forums on genderdiversity.
