10 films and series to celebrate International Trans Visibility Day



On March 31, International Trans Visibility Day is celebrated, in celebration of the importance, legacy and ongoing struggle for equal rights for the transsexual and transvestite community.

While the representativeness of this part of the community has steadily increased in the entertainment scene – with productions that deconstruct stereotypes and bet on real and poignant stories – it is necessary to comment that the fight is daily . Brazil is the country that kills the most transvestites and transsexuals; in the past eight years alone, 868 people have been murdered (within the limits of what can be counted, given that some of the information is biased, wrong and dishonest).

To keep the memory of leading trans activists alive, CinePOP has separated a short and simple list of ten films and series that reveal and explain the daily obstacles the community faces – and their constant struggle for acceptance and opportunity.

Check out our picks below and tell us which one is your favorite:

In “Pose,” people experience a lifestyle never seen before in New York history: the rise of luxury culture in the late 1980s. Paradoxically, the part of society which enjoys increased consumption and privileges clashes with the other segment, which faces the decline of the social and literary scene in the city center. Created by Ryan Murphy, the show’s cast has brought together the most trans actresses and actors in history and has carried a massive legacy from its spectacular debut.

Clayton, being a trans woman, also plays an extremely intelligent trans hacker with necessary and thoughtful dialogue about the daily struggle of the community.
