Trans Movies

Recommended Posts

Guest SouthernBelle

OK, so I'm sure that all of you know I'm a pirate. ARRRRRR!

I have been watching movies just about every day, but I want to watch more movies about transgendered people. I prefer movies about transsexuals, but I'll watch anything.

So! What are some good movies about transgendered people? I've seen Boys Don't Cry and Hedwig and the Angry Inch so far. What else is out there???

Pricilla, Queen of the desert

Transamerica

One I have seen however and really enjoyed was Kinky Boots!

Seems like most of them don't have very good endings..like Boys Dont Cry.

Soldiers Girl was good until the end.

Better than Chocolate has a trans character in it.

Seems like there was a topic that had a pretty long list of movies on here somewhere already.

I don't know if you can find it, but if you ever get the chance to watch "Medical Center" The Fourth Sex: " (1975) give it a shot. It was a TV series and aired while I was home on leave. I remember watching it in excitement thinking, "Man, if only I could do that!" But I couldn't show my excitement since Mom and Dad were both watching it as well. My Dad was hell bent on his boys being boys.

But I was disappointed with the ending. Seeing Robert Reed as the female bothered me because he didn't look natural. I was already large and knew that if nothing could be done with the face, I would be an ugly woman. It was hard enough just being a large insecure male. I knew I couldn't handle a sex change.

However, today's procedures seem to be so much better. God Bless Technology but more importantly, God Bless those who paved the way.

"Medical Center!"

Thank uyou Dawn, I was telling someone about this episode a while back and I could not remember the name of the series - I clearly remembered that episode and its title.

Do you remember the episode name about the intersexed boy who was having health issues and had to be made one sex or the other and his parents had to choose?

I saw the last half of it once and it left me very confused.

Love ya,

Sally

The film kinky boots was set in my home town ;) . I watched it and to be honest I found it dull but maybe because I had a boring day and watching a film just sent me to sleep.

A few others that may be of interest if you'll accept CD'ing as against trans-sexual films.

How about St. Trinians, both the old lack and white versions with Alistair Sim as the Headmistress or the new versions with Rupert Everett.

I actually have seen Transamerica, I watched it with my mom, just as a regular movie since I wasn't involved with anything trans related at the time. I think it was good for my mom especially, since soon afterwards she had a coworker transition mtf. But even beyond that, it was just a good movie. =)

I rented Hedwig the other day, but I burnt it and haven't had a chance to watch it. I heard it's good.

It's very good, especially if you like punk rock.

How about the following -

'To Wong Fu, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar'

Victor/Victoria

Ma Vie En Rose

Ready? Ok.

A Girl Like Me. Gwen Arujo Story.

Some Like It Hot

Good-bye Charlie

Switch

The last two were very mainline movies with 'magical' transformations that were both daring and extremely tame for their times. That gender switching was even being considered in movies of that type was amazing.

Stage Beauty is a film about someone questioning their gender identity in the background of a really awesome film. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0368658/

Zerophilia is a funny, not-trans-per-se film that has one hell of a lot of gender switching in it. Quite interesting when viewed from the 'gender is a spectrum' viewpoint, but it's about as intellectual as you decide to make it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421090/

Better than chocolate... Is the trans character an important character? I don't care so much if he or she is hardly on-screen.

I saw Normal when it came out. It was actually how I learned what transexuality was! I remember watching it with my mom. I was... 12. Hmm. I remembered it the other day and meant to post it here, but forgot, I'm glad Carolyn did. I need to see it again though, I don't remember it too well. I liked it a lot at the time though.

The trans character is one of the four main characters. It is mainly a film about lesbians, but the trans character has a song that you are sure to get a laugh out of.

That movie is great! but be warned it is really sad/hard to watch at parts. probably more so if another trans is watching and can relate! but still a wonderful movie. can the french do any wrong? my answer: no

Hi Sally,

Sorry it's taken so long to respond. I don't remember the show you are talking about, but I do remember some show (real life) where a botched circumcision on a baby boy destroyed most of his penis, so the doctors and parents decided on making and raising him as a girl and it didn't work. She(He) knew deep down that he should have been male. So that blows the argument that upbringing makes a difference.

If you ever do find out the name of the movie you're talking about, let me know, I'd love to see it.

When I went to look for it on the site I usually get my torrents from, a TS porn site popped up. How revolting!

Anyway, I just thought it was an interesting and disgusting thing and I thought I should share it.

LOVE

Belle

      An interesting subject. Probably a lifetimes work there!   Tracy

      Yes I agree to staying online. At least you have friends you can relate to here which is good, epecially if things get tough.   Tracy

      Good luck! I don't know how well it will relate to your job but I have a general link here which gives a flavour of things in the NHS.  It, and the links from it, may be a help. https://www.nhsemployers.org/retention-and-staff-experience/diversity-and-inclusion/policy-and-guidance/sexual-orientation   Private companies do not usually publish their policies online (as far as I know) but NHS trust and probably local government documents are likely to be available. A quick look found this for Newcastle: http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/downloads/policies/Personnel/GenderTransitionatWorkPolicy201808.pdf   I had a little look and found some info which private companies give but it would take a bit of searching to find details specific to gender, but may exist although maybe only in large companies. I did come across a council document though:   https://wolverhampton.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s36286/Appendix - Transgender Guidance Notes.pdf   Tracy

      I'm sure as Carolyn Marie said, most of us had doubts.    Me personally, I had a lot of doubts the months before I got on hrt. But by the time I got it, I reasoned that I'd never be happy to keep going on as a man. So I took the plunge, and so far transition has been pretty gentle to me. I'm very content with my choice and where I see transition taking me now.    Really at the end of the day, it's your decision though. If you aren't already, maybe consider talking with a gender therapist, or find a community meeting local to you. Some ways to get some perspective.

      Hello, Crystal Elaine, and welcome to Trans Pulse.  I want to start by congratulating you on being open minded, non-judgemental, loving and supportive.  It is wonderful to hear about, as its not as common an occurrence as we would hope.   What you've done together so far is a great start.  Other suggestions I can make include letting him dress and sleep in a nightgown (some have sexual relations this way, and I hear it can really invigorate a couple's sex life).  Helping him with makeup, buying a wig, wearing small items of jewelry (that he can hide from others, like an ankle bracelet) can also help with feeling feminine.   I'm sure others will have great ideas, too.  Thanks for asking, and best wishes to you both.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Many of us have doubts about virtually every aspect of our transition.  Having doubts and questions about HRT is not only normal, it is logical and sensible.  That's because HRT carries risks, as does any prescription medication, and those risks can be significant, especially if you have some types of pre-existing conditions.   My advice is to read as much as you can from reputable sites and publications, starting with the WPATH Standards of Care.  There is a whole lot of good information about it, including on this web site.  Being informed and knowledgeable is important.  I've had to educate some of my own doctors, which is not an unusual thing.   If you have specific questions, we'll try to answer them, but we aren't medical professionals, so be guided by your doctors and by your own informed mind.   Carolyn Marie

      Hey everyone,    Thanks for all the advice from my last post.    Today, I went to an endo doctor, and they say I might be able to hopefully start hormones in the next couple of weeks. When they told me that, I was excited but still hesitant. I always keep thinking that I'm going to have regrets or something. Is that normal? Did any of you have this feeling when starting hormones?    Thanks in advance!!

      My husband recently discovered by complete accident that he likes cross dressing. When I say by accident, I had seen videos of boyfriends/husbands doing their girlfriends/wives makeup, and I asked him to do mine. After he was done, I asked to do his. To both of our surprise, he really liked it. Now we are pretty adventurous in the bedroom, and we decided this could be a fun role play (my husband is into domination/humiliation). However, he didn't feel dominated or humiliated. He felt empowered and "pretty" to use his own words. For the rest of the night, he wore one of my dresses and a full face of makeup. The next day, we went out and bought a wig to complete his look. That night, I taught him how to do his own makeup, he put on one of my dresses and his wig, and he absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, it made me feel extremely uncomfortable. When I looked at him, I didn't feel like I was looking at my husband. I felt as though I had lost my husband.    After discussing this with my husband, he explained that he just liked not having to feel masculine. He likes getting in touch with his feminine side. Now my husband is a correctional officer who grew up in a strict southern baptist household. We have been exploring his sexuality together recently, and he has come to the decision that he not attracted to men, but he does still like to dress as a woman. He does not feel as though he is a woman, he is just tired of feeling like he has to live up to the standard masculine social norms.    We decided that I may have been uncomfortable because we just jumped straight into it instead of easing in. So we have decided to work up to him completely cross dressing by doing things that are deemed feminine. Last night, we did a foot scrub, painted our toe nails, and did a facial mask. I would love suggestions of other activities we can do to not only help me ease into the idea of my husband cross dressing, but to also allow him to do what makes him feel comfortable and helps him relax. I would also love any advice on what has helped anyone else through the same situation.   I love my husband dearly, and it's been a while since I've seen my husband that happy and relaxed. I am trying to support him the best that I can, but I am also confused by this.
