- PBS did a story on Atherton HS in Louisville. It's one of the first high schools in the South to implement policies to protect trans students.
- TED things
- A list of trans TED talks
- Nicole Maines talks about the impact that non-trans people can have on the lives of trans people.
- Norman Spack talks about his work as an endocrinologist who treats transgender teens.
- HerStory Show is a fantastic but short series on youtube.
- Laura Jane Grace (of the band Against Me!) has a show called True Trans. Her band's album Transgender Dysphoria Blues is absolutely incredible.
- Sense8 is weird and captivating and fantastic sci-fi drama series from the Wachowski Sisters of The Matrix fame.
- Transparent is a very good drama that centers on a trans woman (yes, played by a cis man) who transitions late in life and tries to manage her dysfunctional family. The show includes several trans actors and writers.
- Orange is the New Black prominently features Laverne Cox's character Sophia Burset.
- Tangerine is an independent film about two trans sex workers that is in turns hilarious and heartbreaking and difficult to watch.
- The LGBT Center in Manhattan put together this "Transgender Basics" video. It kinda feels like a high school sex ed video but it also features 2007 Laverne Cox which is cool.
- One from the vaults is a super informative podcast about trans people throughout history. Morgan M Page puts it together and she's fantastic.
- PFLAG has a sort of book "Our Trans Loved Ones" that I've heard good things about. Also PFLAG is just a really good group.
- Vox has published some pretty solid pieces on trans people. Here's a collection of stories from 9 trans people. And the voxsplainers are also pretty good: 9 questions about gender identity and being transgender you were too embarrassed to ask, and 11 myths about transgender people.
- I grew up Catholic and a lot of those I've known the longest are Catholic. I think many would be surprised to learn that the Catholic church's teachings on trans people are pretty much non-existent and what there is ends up being kind of confused. What does the catholic church actually say about transgenderism? goes over exactly that from about 3 years ago. The author, Anna Magdalena, has written extensively about the topic.
- Here's a reddit thread of trans people answering "what was something you weren't expecting to be told, find out, or experience when going through your transition?" Very good replies from a bunch of people.
- Whipping Girl by Julia Serano is fantastic non-fiction. It's many things but one of them is a primer on how the transgender identity relates to feminism and vice-versa.
- Nevada is a short novel by Imogen Binnie. Very easy to read with super compelling characters. I don't want to give things away so just read it.
- A Safe Girl to Love is a collection of fantastic short stories by Casey Plett. She accomplishes a lot in a small amount of space. I would love to read a novel by her.
- Redefining Realness is Janet Mock's memoir. This is next on my list of books to read but it comes so highly recommended that I wanted to include it.
I will be adding to this list over time. Also, it's worth noting that this list reflects me and my tastes and background (white american trans girl) and isn't meant to speak for all trans people in any way.
