A handful of trans-themed films

On February 25, 2012, FORGE screened “How Do I Look?” as part of Black History Month. Many people were interested in learning more about other trans-themed films. Here is a brief list. Some are available through Amazon.com or Netflix.com, while others may be more difficult to find.
