July 18, 2013: Trans People in the Media

July 19, 2013

There’s a new show on Netflix called “Orange is the New Black.” It’s about a yuppie woman who goes to prison. I haven’t seen it yet, but it sounds good, and the trailers look good.

The main reason why I want to check it out, though, is that one of the characters is a trans woman, who is played by a trans woman. Here’s a link to an article about the show and about how trans people are portrayed — and cast — in movies, TV shows, etc.:

I’ll watch the first episode this weekend and blog my comments.
