The Trans List

Director: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders
Release Year: 2016

Synopsis:
"The Trans List foregrounds the lived experiences of its subjects, who are also some of the most fascinating and accomplished individuals of today (or any day), including Janet Mock, Kylar Broadus, Caroline Cossey, Buck Angel, Nicole Maines, Amos Mac, Laverne Cox, Caitlyn Jenner, Bamby Salcedo, Shane Ortega, Alok Vaid-Menon, and Miss Major Griffin-Gracy."

"These are activists, artists, athletes, models, porn stars, military personnel, and entrepreneurs. Their stories extend beyond surface explanations of identity to deeper realities of politics and pleasure, telling captivating tales of love, desire, family, prejudice, and rebellion—from Cossey’s difficult days as an outed “James Bond Girl” to Griffin-Gracy’s striking memories of the Stonewall Riots."
