Amazon commissions new trans-based TV series ‘Transparent’

  • LD

    you couldn’t have hired ONE single trans actor for your main cast? wtf

    • Emily Hirsch

      they have a casting call for “real live trans people” for some support group scene… that’s visibility… or not.

  • First there was Transamerica, a movie about a trans woman taking a road trip across America.

    Now there’s Transparent, a series about a transgender parent.

    How can this be a victory of visibility if cis actors are tapped to play trans* people? How can trans* actors and actresses create a dialogue when they are being written out of their own story? How can this be ok when an actual trans* person could benefit from both the exposure and finances that this opportunity would provide while being able to actually lend their experience to the storyline? oh wow. gtfoh.

    Another “trans people are good for laughs” series. Some things never change.
