Go beyond damaging stereotypes for an intimate, uncensored look at America's growing transsexual community.
What does it mean to be a man or woman? In America's growing transsexual community, this question takes on a whole new and powerful meaning.
INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM goes beyond ignorance and stereotypes for an intimate portrayal of the people who choose to change their sexuality. Among the unexpected, ferociously articulate characters we meet are a female-to-male transsexual who works for the Tampa sheriff's office, a male-to-female electrical designer who has hosted an MIT radio show called Gendertalk, and a Southern good-old-boy who we follow through his surgical transformation. THE TRANSGENDER REVOLUTION also examines the fast-growing movement to combat gender oppression, highlighting the nation's most notorious transsexual killings and a Congressional battle over including transsexuals in the Hate Crimes Act.
Featuring interviews with the founder of the transsexual political organization GenderPAC and a noted neurosurgeon specializing in sex change operations, this is a surprising portrayal of a misunderstood, growing subculture.
