Trinidad
17 July 2009 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

No, not the Caribbean island — the town in Colorado! Prior to seeing this film, I had not only never heard of Trinidad, I also had no idea that this bucolic burg was also home to the nation's largest colony of transgender folk. How did this happen? Pure happenstance, really, as a doctor specializing in sex change ops took up residence there in the 1960s, and one thing led to another. If you're squeamish, don't worry — this is no Let Me Die a Woman, instead concentrating on the development of a post-op transgender community in Bat Masterson's old hometown. Trinidad is a revealing, surprising, and life-affirming documentary that will have you reconsidering your assumptions about sexuality and gender.
