As complete of a list of Transgender / Transsexual Films involving Transgender people & topics more of a main character.
There are other movies involving transgender characters in smaller roles like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective or Rock Star, but they don't really tell the story of a Trans person.
The list is a collection of all the movies and shows I can find. The order of movies on the list does not reflect any kind of rating, just the order the movies were added to the list. If you know of any not on the list please let me know so I can add them. Thanks :)
