Transgender

| No Comments

I was really intrigued by the ideas of the "transgender gaze." I have personally seen Boys Don't Cry and this gives me a better insight to the idea of transgender gaze. Throughout the whole move Hilary Swank is a guy that is actually a girl and she ends up falling in love with another women. I think the transgender gaze is less in this movie because I knew the premise and the fact that Hilary Swank was playing a boy. My question would be, Do you think Hollywood/media is at fault for creating negative stereotypes towards transgender people. In both the movies, being transgender is a problem and is this the media's fault?
