Transgender Movie Characters

Here is an interesting piece from US News regarding the absence of transgender characters in the media in 2014.

Last year was a banner year for the representation of transgender people on television. Laverne Cox of the Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black” became the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy, while “Transparent,” an Amazon Studios show about a transgender woman coming out to her family, premiered to critical raves. 
But on film, transgender characters were nowhere to be found.
