THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Premiering this week, the UK’s Channel 4 new documentary follows trans woman Vikki-Marie Gaynor and four ciswomen truck drivers as they work in an industry historically dominated by males.

In addition to highlighting the hurdles women face in the business, the show will also cover Gaynor’s struggle to gain acceptance since openly becoming female 5 years ago. Gaynor, of course, has the unique perspective of having sat on both sides of the gender spectrum along with her experience of having to sue a former employer for discrimination.

Trucking is an industry not exactly openly welcoming females, never mind trans women, so with this series, the trucking industry’s day of reckoning may finally be here.
