Thursday March 5, 2015 - A great movie for us about us

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a potential new CBS TV show that includes a healthy, educated transgendered women with a romantic interest.

Have you seen this movie. Its called Boy Meets Girl and its a romantic comedic transgendered love story. That's a mouth full.

This is great.

The more we appear as normal loving humans, the more it will help our cause. Check out the trailer below.

In a previous post, I discussed how Modern Family may have helped secure the change is society toward same-sex marriage.

Movies and TV shows staring positive transgender people could do the same for transgender rights. If you look at the polling, its similar to same-sex marriage in 2004.

In March 2014, CBS completed a poll about transgender people about which bathroom should they use. A majority of respondents stated that transgender people need to use the bathroom based on their birth.

 59% for bathroom based on birth
 26% for bathroom based on presentation

This is the same as polling in 2004 about same sex marriage:
PEW         60% against 29% for -31%
GALLUP  59% against 36 % for - 23%

Seven years later and two years after Modern Family began, the polling showed a 50%/50% split.
Ten years later and five years after Modern family began, the polling is positive by 13% to 15%.

I look forward to the same thing happening to the transgender community. We must support these movies and TV shows because more will be made, if they attract an audience. And attracting an audience with positive transgender characters is the key.

Here is a youtube video from the Transwoman in the movie.
