Festival favorite documentary Quiet Heroes airs this Thursday on Logo. The doc follows Dr. Kristen Reis, the first doctor in the state of Utah to treat patients diagnosed with HIV and AIDs. Reis and her partner Maggie Snyder worked against the stigma of conservative Utah at the time, and provided both medical care and a safe space to their patients, many of whom were ostracized by their own families. The film seeks to shed light on Reis, Snyder, their practice, and how many lives they touched. Quiet Heroes: Thursday, 8pm on Logo.

On Friday, HBO's VICE will air an episode that follows the ongoing fight for transgender rights in Texas. Last season, VICE investigated the complicated lives of trans kids and their families as they navigate decisions over medical transitions and how best to support their children’s identity. A year later, life for transgender Americans has become more uncertain as politicians dismantle key federal and state protections and introduce a slew of anti-LGBT bills. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni returns to Texas to see how the transgender community there is fighting to win acceptance and protection. VICE: Trans in Texas: 7:30pm, Friday on HBO.
