List of movies with transgender themes or actors. Doesn't include cross-dressing movies such as Tootsie or Mrs. Doubtfire as those movies, wonderful as they are, tend not to deal with transgender issues. Listed starting with the most recent. Please email additions and corrections.

Becoming Chaz (2011) Documentary of the FTM transition of the child of Sunny and Cher, Chastity, becoming Chaz. Very honest. I felt I was there.
Tomboy (2011) I can't tell if the title role is about a tomboy, t-boy, a boi or dyke. This French movie shows some of the earliest difficulties in the life of someone otherly gendered. It is also nice to see more TG movies showing that end of the spectrum.

It's a Boy Girl Thing (2006) Typical unwitting body-swap comedy but who doesn't love a good forced feminization story now and then?
Soap, En (2006) Trans slice-of-life movie. Touching love between a transsexual woman and a genetic woman both floundering and helping each other.

20 Centimeters Spanish movie about a narcoleptic transwoman trying to navigate difficult relationship issues while attempting to save enough for her bottom surgery.
Transamerica (2005) Feliclity Huffman gives an Oscar-worthy performance of a transwoman reconciling her past on the eve of her final surgery. She was nominated for best actress but the award went to Reese Witherspoon for her work in Walk the Line. I can hardly see how one could compare the two works but then I am very biased. Maybe not enough of the judges bothered to see the movie.

Wild Side (2004) Transsexual actor Stéphanie Michelini gives an extremely intimate portrayal of some of the joys and difficulties of being transgendered.

Beautiful Boxer (2003) True story of the public transition of a Thai boxer.
Normal (2003) Reasonably realistic story of a man transitioning within marriage.
Soldier's Girl (2003) Warning, the story is tragic and the movie contains some graphic violence, but it is also a true story and the movie is well done.

Badge, The (2002) Mysterious death of a transsexual woman. Somewhat educational look at what it means to be transgendered in America.
Cockettes, The (2002) Good documentary on a early San Francisco drag phenomenon.
Venus Boyz (2002) A fascinating glimpse into the worlds of drag kings and female-to-male transsexuals.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) By far my favorite TG movie
Princesa (2001) Extremely realistic look at the life of a typical transsexual sex worker. Respectfully shows that being non-op is an acceptable choice.
Southern Comfort (2001) Excellent documentary on transsexual lives and relationships featuring a beautiful relationship between an MTF and a FTM.

Wonder Boys (2000) Contains a transgender minor character as the girlfriend of the character played by Robert Downey Jr.  Notable in that her TG status doesn't become an issue or a joke.

Better Than Chocolate (1999) Nice, little story with a transgender character who's just another character.
Boys Don't Cry (1999) Very big and excellent biography of FTM transgender Brandon Teena.
Flawless (1999) Realistic story underscores the common humanity of a drag queen as discovered by a redneck character played by Robert DeNiro.
All About My Mother (Todo sobre mi madre) (1999) Just a fun movie involving a family member who has transitioned.

Ma vie en rose (1997) A touching story about a feminine boy who resists societal conditioning to be masculine.

Different for Girls (1996) A story of deep friendship.

To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar (1995) Drag queen road movie. Not very deep but who can resist watching Wesley Snipes and Patrick Swayze in drag!
Wigstock: The Movie (1995) Penetrating documentary into the lives of drag queens.

Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, The (1994) A classic road movie with non-classic travelers.

M. Butterfly (1993) An amazingly good film.

Crying Game, The (1992) Love among the trans-folk.
Just Like a Woman (1992) Realistic look at some of the personal problems experienced by transgenders.
Orlando (1992) A rather boring movie IMHO, but main character experiences life from both sides and is therefore notable.
Prelude to a Kiss (1992) Another movie where people experience life from both sides, but this one is fun, sensitive, and romantic.

Switch (1991) A remake of Goodbye Charlie. Very funny.

I Want What I Want (1972) A very early look at the subject of sex-change. Poor movie and completely unrealistic but interesting historically.

Myra Breckinridge (1970)  Main character changes her sex to exact revenge. Movie techniques are far ahead of their time.

Goodbye Charlie (1964)  Another died-and-sent-back-to-earth-fix-mistakes movie but with a twist: He's got to do it in a woman's body.

Here is the list of forthcoming events taking place in the next month or two in the Tri-State area for the benefit of all our local recipients. Whilst we cannot be held responsible for any listings we publish in terms of accuracy of information or quality of the eventual event we will only publish details of events where we know the organizers or existing customers know the organizers and have visited the establishment.

With the end of the year beckoning there are some fabulous tri-state events taking place over the festive season starting with the annual Fetish Party at Amanda's Hideaway on November 29th. And don't forget the big one on New Year's Eve: Tiffany Leigh and friends will be celebrating as usual at Triangles in Danbury, CT (Wednesday 12/31).

As well as Amanda's in South Hackensack, other venues we can vouch for include Triangles in Danbury, CT meeting every month and probably the largest regular meeting place of all.

Up-coming Highlights:

- Amandas Hideaway, S. Hackensack Fetish Party, Saturday, November 29th

- Triangles, Danbury, CT A Tribute to Bettie Page + 9th Annual Anniversary Party, Saturday, December 13th

If you are in the Big Apple there is Crossdressers International that have a fantastic array of activities and facilities in a great NYC location. Travel a little further over the NJ/PA border and there are the wonderful Jennifer Bryant parties at The Raven in New Hope, PA. Keep reporting back and we'll add to the list of your recommended places to be seen. There are of course many smaller support groups for tri-state girls like Pathways with social activities and clubs that have theme nights. If you know of them in advance then do let us know so we can post details up here if they are recommended.

New Midtown Luxury Tower's Neighbor: Secret Swingers Club!


The area around the Empire State Building is no crown jewel of a neighborhood, but the developers of the new Setai Fifth Avenue condo and hotel have said their tower will single-handedly improve the region's character. We're guessing that will be accomplished through the building's astronomical asking prices and luxury amenities like an ice cave, but before the neighborhood becomes the new Central Park West, let's take a moment to salute those endangered local establishments?like the Carousel Couples Club, the secretish swingers club with events like Porn Star Fridays and Cougar Mondays. Does the Setai really want to cage these cougars?

Writes a tipster, "I wonder if the concierge at the Setai Midtown knows they are conveniently located next to a swinger's club. The Carousel Swinger's Club is located at 11 W 36th Street, buzzer #4, just a few doors around the corner from the Setai." Are you kidding? The Setai's spa practically sounds like a swingers club itself! We wouldn't be surprised if the concierge points residents the Carousel's way. The club's website states its location as "two blocks from the Empire State Building," but the specific address is found elsewhere on the web. Like the Setai, the Carousel also has an impressive list of amenities:

It's no ice cave, but at least the accommodations are a heck of a lot cheaper.
· Carousel Couples Club [Official Site]
· Setai Fifth Avenue [Curbed]
· Setai Fifth Avenue [Official Site]Lounge Area, Free Setup Soda Area, Professional music system, Ladies Changing Room, Voyeurs Area, See-through Exhibitionist’s Room, Couples Dark & Intimate “Conversation Rooms,†Clean rest rooms and shower. A freshly laundered towel and personal item locker is provided upon request.
