Transvisible is about Bamby Salcedo, a transLatina activist from Guadalajara, Mexico. The film portrays her struggles with the racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and misogyny faced by the LGBTQ+ community. Bamby is the founder and president of the TransLatin@ Coalition located in East Los Angeles. Bamby's efforts center on creating an intersectional community focused on Latinxs, immigrants, HIV positive people, youth and the LGBTQ+ community.
