This episode of Horizon deals with the issue of the transgender community in a very simple way: by getting trans men and trans women to talk for themselves.

The people featured talk about themselves among family and friends, how they have transitioned, and how they archiving their goals.

As someone who has been in a long term, long distance relationship with someone who is transgender (genderfluid to be exact), I certainly have become more aware of the issues this community faces, and that just getting them to speak for themselves rather than having someone speak for or against them is going to do a lot more good than most commentators on the issue.

Horizon: Being Transgender is on BBC Two at 21.00.
