While the trans* movement is currently a topic of great discussion thanks to high-profile political action and celebrity attention, many people may not be familiar with the stories of trans* activists who have been changing attitudes and fighting for equality for the past half century.
The Trans List features engaging interviews with leaders in trans* rights, not only those who are making news today but also those who have been fighting for equality from the days of the Stonewall riots and before.
Filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders provides intimate portraits of 11 trans luminaries, including Laverne Cox, Kylar Broadus, Caroline Cossey, Bamby Salcedo, and Caitlyn Jenner.
If you’re not familiar with these names, you probably should be, and you’ll be surprised and moved by their emotional and inspiring stories.
