THE TRANS LIST is a new HBO documentary by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders exploring the experience of transgender Americans. With interviews by Janet Mock.
“At one point during The Trans List, [….] actress Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black) stares directly into the camera and emphatically asserts, “My voice matters. My truth matters.” These words, simple yet potent, remind viewers why documentaries like The Trans List are so vital.
While transgender narratives have recently become more common within the pop culture landscape, it’s rare that we actually get to hear transgender people voicing their own stories, telling their own truths” — Curran Nault (via Frameline40).
