Amid a series of transphobic bills hoping to prevent transgender athletes from participating in high school sports, a new Hulu documentary titled "Changing the Game" is also hoping to change minds.

The film follows three transgender athletes as the fight for inclusivity in the sports they love, as reported by People.

"The film — set to premiere on the streaming service on June 1 — follows Beggs, a male wrestler who became the first Texas State champion in girls wrestling, as well as Andraya Yearwood, a star on the girls track team in Connecticut and Sarah Huckman, a skier and policymaker from New Hampshire," People reports.

To date, there have been anti-trans bills introduced in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Maine, and most recently Kansas, to ban transgender athletes from participating on teams that affirm their gender identity.

In the trailer, skier Sarah Huckman passionately shares, "There's a lot of things that I want because I'm a teen. I want makeup I want shoes but the main thing that I want is just to be accepted as me." Everyone deserves to be.

The documentary is set to hit Hulu on June 1. Will you be watching?
