HBO's The Trans List
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,""trans- sexual,""genderqueer,""bi-gender," and "non gender-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.
“These people have selflessly signed up to give their lives in defense of others,” said Ssg.. Shane Ortega, a helicopter crew chief in the Army’s 25th Infantry Division.
