Transparent is an comedy / drama television series. The series was created and directed by Jill Soloway and produced by Amazon Studios. It debuted on February 6, 2014 as an online version, and has been picked up for a 2nd season.
Maybe not the exact picture of a transgendered person / Shemale that most of the guys on this site are looking for, but it's good to see realistic portrayals of what people actually go through. I heard an interview with the Jill on the CBC, and the series is based on her father coming out later in life.
It's neat to see how Transgendered people are being treated in some shows on TV.
Sons of Anarchy is about a bunch of tough bikers who go around murdering everyone. There is a transgendered actress on the show, who is not only treated well by the gang in general, but who is openly lusted after by one of the members.
It's cool to see they are gaining some sort of acceptance from a wider audience. Hopefully this will reduce some of the stigma some people still feel towards transgendered people.
(ok, to be truthful, this wasn't the clip I had in mind when i wrote the story, BUT I'm a few episodes behind... and this blew my mind!)
Ok, Youtube keeps removing these clips, so here is a Youtube search
There are a surprising number of mainstream references to 'Naughty' subjects. Today I'll highlight one of my favourites, the 1992 movie The Crying Game.
If you nave never seen it, the movie stars Forest Whitaker , Jaye Davidson and Stephen Rea, and is an absolute gem.
I don't want to give the ending away, but Forest Whitaker's sibling turns up as a transsexual woman at the end of the movie (yes, yes, I know...).
Shemales seem to be becoming more and more accepted into mainstream society. I really believe most guys find them sexually intriguing, but the cultural taboo seems to keep everyone from openly admitting.
Hopefully, as there are more and more references to them in everyday life, they will become more accepted.
