Presented by: Department of Psychiatry and LGPTQI Life as part of Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov. 20).
USA (2011) Dir: Chris Arnold. An extraordinary documentary about men and women, and all the variations in between. The transgender community is perhaps the most misunderstood and mistreated minority in America and around the world. Inspired by the story of Dr. Christine McGinn and her work as a transgender surgeon, the film provides a very personal vision into the lives, loves, and challenges of a remarkable cast of characters of all ages and from all walks of life. Stories of confusion and courage, excitement and emotion that have never been told, until now. To anyone who has ever looked in a mirror and wondered, who they really are, Trans asks another question: are you brave enough to find out? English. Unrated. 104 mins. DVD.
