Movies gives transgender people a human face and makes it harder to turn them into stereotypes.
This applies to all: Those who transition and those who do not. Drag queens and crossdressers. Gender variant kids and those who have lived for a while.
It seems to me this year's transgender film festival in Kiel has managed to capture the breadth of the transgender community.
