Storyline

The Trans List explores the range of experiences lived by Americans who identify as transgender (an umbrella term for people whose gender identity does not conform to that typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth). No two experiences of trans people are exactly alike. Transgender, transsexual, gender-queer, bi-gender, and non-binary are just a few of the multitude of self-identifiers in the trans community. This film gives a platform to a diverse group of eleven individuals to tell their stories in their own words of their experience with identity, family, career, love, struggle and accomplishment.

It lets the transgendered speak for themselves
24 December 2016 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

This HBO documentary, although it has a small introduction, is almost exclusively the transgendered from all walks of life talking about their personal journeys trying to live out their lives in the body that matches their hearts and minds. Unless you believe in conspiracy theories on this subject, all of those speaking said that from their earliest memories, predating puberty, they just felt wrong in their bodies.

Some were older - in their 40s - 60s. When they sought counseling in the 80s and even in the 90s they were told that their same sex attraction meant that they were gay, since many didn't even consider the fact that "transgendered" was a real identity back then. However, the transgendered knew instinctively that this was not the whole story.

Some lived middle class lives, one guy was an attorney, several had been to prison as a result of addictions they had developed in trying to deal with being transgendered. They then had to deal with all of the problems of living day to day lives with people who are violent and predatory and at the same time dealing with their body issues.

One thing that was not mentioned that would be a big issue in America was exactly how the interviewees managed to pay for the surgery and hormone therapy that finally allowed them to live comfortably in their own skin, but I don't think that was the point. The point was to show the transgendered speaking for themselves rather than having a stereotype do that speaking.

I'd recommend this documentary if it comes your way.
