"Trans" - A powerful documentary about trans people
Trans is an award winning movie produced by Mark Schoen. This full length documentary film has won many accolades for its sensitive portrayal of the lives of people who are transgender. The video can be purchased on DVD by the producers of the movie - this is the trailer.  I have now bought the PAL version of this movie on DVD and it really is compelling viewing for anybody who is trans or who might benefit from seeing it.  Whilst shocking in parts, it was also tremendously empowering in other ways and left me being proud of who I am and the person that I became.
