Disclosure ★★★

An important doc that traces the history of trans rep on screen — good and bad — and speaks to trans people about how they reconcile and relate to those images. You can’t expect a 108 minute film to catch every single trans portrayal on screen but I left feeling a bit frustrated the only transmasc characters we saw and talked about were all played by cis women. Why interview Elliot Fletcher and not talk about his roles in the Fosters or Shameless? Why have so many trans men talk about how under represented we are in media, only to under represent us even further in the narratives you focus on???
I want our legacy to be more than  Boys Don’t Cry, I’m so tired
