On Trans Representation in Media - Liz Duck-Chong

I had a bit of a rant on Twitter the other night and then supplemented it with a few other words last night. As not only a trans woman, but someone who has spent the past 6 years writing films featuring transgender characters (and hopefully one day soon will actually get together the cash to make one of them) I can’t even imagine a reality in which those characters would not be played by transgender people.

Others have talked about this before me, and far more eloquently I’m sure, but this crap gets on my nerves in such a big way and this is my response.
