Several films and television programs featuring transgender issues have come to the screen in the last few years. We are adding our firsthand experiences through consultations and our own productions. Since Soldier’s Girl, we’ve also consulted and appeared in the film Transamerica, starring Felicity Huffman, in HBO’s documentary Middle Sexes, and in the LOGO network’s documentary Beautiful Daughters, about our V-Day LA event.
Films like these have finally brought compassionate depictions of our lives to large audiences. We’ve been inspired to do even more. We plan to create more accurate and positive portrayals of us in the media, and work to give actors like us a chance to break out of the limited roles to which we are currently confined. Our short Casting Pearls comments on the treatment of transgender characters in Hollywood through a humorous series of auditions and screen tests navigated by a transgender protagonist.
