Transgender

From the good to the bad, every depiction of transgender characters in media or media created by (out) transgender people (director or writer) that I have seen.

Drag queens/kings not included.

Recommendations and reminders of films I've obviously failed to include welcome. A lot of bad depictions don't come to mind easily, for instance. I will only add things I've seen, as this is a ranked list.

Intentionally left out:
Four Flies on Grey Velvet
Psycho
Sleepaway Camp
A Fan
A Blade in the Dark
Victor/Victoria
The Ardennes

Need to see or rewatch:
Georgie Girl
Paulista
Field Full of Secrets
Screaming Queens
Midori
The Adventures Of Iron Pussy
The Christine Jorgensen Story
Breakfast on Pluto
Rent
(ugh)
Escape from LA…
