The Best Transgender Films I've Seen

"Transamerica" ranks number one in the best transgender movies he has ever seen. "Transamerica" ranks number one in the best transgender movies he has ever seen.

Recently I've written about a movie that drew some controversy for its use of the word "trannies." The TV series Glee also came under fire for its use of the word "tranny" in one of its episodes. A tranny or the plural "trannies" is considered a pejorative against transgender people. Transgender is the experience of a person being born as one gender but believing that they should be changed or at least live as the opposite gender. Some boys are born believing they should be girls and some girls are born believing they should be boys. Modern technology allows those changes to occur and modern movies allow people experiencing that to have a voice. There aren't that many, but here is a list of some the best transgender films I've seen:
 
1. TRANSAMERICA (2005)
 
2. SOLDIER'S GIRL (2003)
 
3. PRODIGAL SONS (2010)
 
4. BOYS DON'T CRY (1999)
 
5. HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (2001)
 
6. PARIS IS BURNING (1990)
 
7. THE CRYING GAME (1992)
 
8. ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW ()
 
9. BREAKFAST ON PLUTO (2005)
 
10. BEAUTIFUL BOXER (2004)
