The Trans List

The Trans List is the latest in a series of HBO's documentaries directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. 

Like his previous films, which include The Black List, The Latino List, and The Out List, The Trans List features a sincere, straightforward style of interviewing, giving a platform for people to share their life stories in their own voices. 

From Bamby Salcedo (activist), to Caitlyn Jenner, Laverne Cox, Shane Ortega (U.S. Army Staff Sergeant), Nicole Maines (advocate and actor), Miss Major Griffin-Gracy (advocate and community leader), Kylar Broadus (civil rights attorney), Amos Mac (photographer), Caroline Cossey (model), and Alok Vaid-Menon (writer and performance artist), each shared their personal story in detail, describing in their own words their relationships with identity, family, career, struggle and achievement.

Janet Mock, journalist and advocate, co-produced the film and interviewed each of the documentary's eleven cast members, intimately from behind-the-camera.
