    Ok Girls, lets try something different 🙂 . Do you have a film which inspires you or gives you the impetus to carry on being you, do you have a film that has given you inner strength whether you are Transgender or a Crossdresser? I’ll list a few underneath, if you can think of a film yourself, please share it with us!!!

      First I will admit I have no favorite nor do I even watch much TV and must be 6 months since I last turned one on. I also do not actively search out and watch anything related to trans or CD characters though I have seen a few on the list.  I did want to add a movie not seen in the replies.  I enjoyed this and feel many might like to watch. I viewed on youtube but am sure it’s available in many places.

      Different For Girls 1996

      If I watched the Dukes of Hazzard, if I wasn’t already wearing my shiny tan sheer to waist pantyhose, short shorts and heels, when I saw Daisy I just had to put them on. More then likely I was already wearing them though.

      The first one I ever saw was “Some Like it Hot”  Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon.  Seriously funny.  It’s a classic.

      “Tootsie” was well done and I like the signature line, “I was a better man to you as woman than I was as a man.”

      You’ve got to love “Mrs. Doubtfire”.  I mean, who doesn’t like a good Robin Williams movie.

      Far and away the best of them all was “Just Like a Woman” (1992).  It hits every aspect of cross-dressings worst nightmare.  First his wife comes home early from a trip and finds his femme clothes in their bedroom, assumes he had a woman over.  Won’t listen throws him out and divorces him, then his landlady discovers him, this go better.  She encourages him, goes out with him to CD club.  Then he’s stopped by the police for speeding while en femme, his boss finds out and fires him over it.  After to time of depression, his friend and work colleague encourages him and he and his landlady outwit his old boss and working for his bosses client out do him in a business deal.  Great story.  I could identify with him throughout.

      The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – more drag than crossdressing, but mixes lots of fun with some genuinly poignant moments. And some magnificent scenery and characters.

      (Did you know that Broken Hill in NSW holds an annual festival dedicated to the film?)

      Strangely my favourite crossdressing film is the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Stardust’. Crossdressing is not a main theme of the story, but one of the characters is a crossdreser, and it’s handled in a way that I found both sensitive and funny.

          Didn’t you just love Roxette with her one bare leg, and one leg wearing a fishnet stocking?!

          Great minidress, too. Perfect for street fighting!

            Tabitha;

            I thought it was such a good look for the vamp fighter.. But!…. I loved the question and answer around “what’s it like?” and at that point, thought of all the different directions it could go.     While I would have pushed it into a different path (switch roles),  I found the eventual outcome more satisfying as being possibly realistic.   I’m wondering what tech like this could do for this community…    Being in the closet could mean something oh so much different, and Real Life Tests would be relatively easier and harder all at the same time.

            It was a stunning conclusion however and had me thinking for some time.

            Thanks for mentioning it here

            Hugs

            -Molly

      A movie I saw recently on Netflix is “Girl.” It’s a  foreign film with subtitles. Very authentic, which means a bit tragic in places. OK, most of it. But the determination that she displays is inspiring.

        Lorie, I’ve been wanting to see this film since I discovered its existence some months ago. You must’ve watched it on Netflix streaming (which I don’t have), for it is yet to appear on the Netflix DVD option.

        Judging by the trailer I saw on Youtube, it looks like I’ll need a box or two of tissues to get thru it.

        Maddie, I said it before and I’ll say it again: “Boy Meets Girl” is one of the best, and is near the top of my list. I bought the DVD years ago and watch it once or twice a year. Michelle Hendley is exquisite in the role.

      Unconditional Love is a british movie about a shy teenager who get manipulated in being the girlfriend of an older man. It starts out pretty good, but gets dark throughout the movie. I love it because the boy passes as a woman almost too well. I have to admit this is a secret fantasy of mine. This movie is on amazon.

      The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams.

      Now a musical being performed by the RSC, music by Robbie Williams, but don’t take that as a recommendation ;0)

      The film is wonderful though. Real tear-jerker for any CD.

      Huckleberry Finn for the scene in which Tom Sawyer disguises himself by dressing as a girl. He is found out when a women drops something in his lap. He instinctively closes his legs to trap the object and she explains that a “real” girl would spread her legs and allow the fabric of her dress to catch the object. This is my choice because I started dressing as a young boy and could see myself using the disguise gambit as an “excuse” for dressing as a girl.

      I was sick home from school about 16yo and “The Christina Joregensen Story” movie played. I was totally enthralled by the movie – I so wanted to wear a dress and look pretty – at the end I looked at my mum and she looked at me and no words were said but we both shared that wonderful moment 💋

      it’s funny how we forget and remember stuff

        I’ve seen it mentioned a couple of times but I really enjoyed “The New Girlfriend” also when i was a kid I was very intrigued and secretly jealous of “Ainsly Jarvis” the, butler by day-crossdressing entertainer by night, character in one of the 70’s Pink Panther Movies

          Thanks Gail for recommending “Just Charlie”. I have just watched it and really enjoyed it. I was football mad as a kid and fantasied about playing for Manchester City,so it had a particular resonance for me. Playing for the girls Manchester City team would have been tremendous.

      The rocky horror is one, but TransAmerica (2005) is better.

      I know anime is not for everyone, but there is a cartoon series from Japan called Me, my, I, Strawberry Eggs.  It shows a group of teens struggling through early adulthood and a young teacher that cross dresses to get a job at a school that only allows women teachers.  Turns out he’s struggling more than the students to understand gender and his feelings.  I don’t know why, but the series gets to me….  but I also remember the yummy outfits in Rocky Horror Picture Show when I was younger!

      “A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story” is not available for viewing on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu. However, it is available and free for viewing on YouTube. I just finished watching the movie a few minutes ago. Very sad and very tragic.

      “Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde” is apparently not available for viewing in the United States due to a copyright issue. A small number of video cassettes and/or DVD’s may be available for purchase, but only at inflated prices.

        Thanks for the tip, Tabitha. I was able to find the full movie (“A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story”) on youtube. I added it to my CD movies folder, and hope to find the time to watch it some time soon.

        Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde. I loved that film Stephanie. A classic transexual fantasy. The Danish Girl was enjoyable (although the real story was more interesting apparently). That scene where she was trying on outfits at the costumiers, wonderful.

        I haven’t seen the Rocky Horror Show all the way through although I do remember a young man walking down the main road in my home town going to see the show live at the theater all dressed up with a beautiful girl on either arm dressed the same. I was sooo jealous, (still am).

      Always loved the movie ” Switch ” . It was made in 1991 and starred Ellen Barkin, Jimmy Smits, JoBeth Williams, and Lorraine Bracco . A man is sent back to Earth , as a woman to try and find anyone that could say he was a good person …. He has to learn how to walk , the mannerisms of a woman , and more . It brings to light , that there is more to being a woman , than just being smokin’ hot .

      A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story. I’ve seen this movie 2-3 times already, lol. Very emotional and a must see in my opinion.

      Boy Meets Girl: I just recently watched this on Hulu. A really good movie.

      My favorites are: The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; The Crying Game; and any John Waters movie starring Divine, (which I guess is all of them)!

      But, who could ever forget the remarkable director Ed Wood, and his masterpiece: Glen or Glenda? Glen or Glenda is unintentionally funny due to some directorial errors, and who can ever forget Bela Lugosi saying: “That c***suc** Boris Karloff!”, or Ed’s real life poor wife forever searching for her missing sweater, (which Ed often wore like a security blanket)! Ed Wood had a heart of gold, attempted to humanize crossdressers to a then hostile world, and was largely a man ahead of his time. RIP Ed.

      I’ll have to go with “Boy Meets Girl” as my all-time favorite.

      Of those on your list I enjoyed “Just Like a Woman” and “Ma Vie en Rose.” I’m not a fan of “Mrs. Doubtfire” nor “Tootsie,” although I have seen both.

      I’ve heard of “All the Queen’s Men,” and I’m putting it on my DVD rental queue. “A Little Bit of Lippy” sounds like it might be fun, so I’ll queue that one up as well.

      As to movies not on your list, I saw mentioned “The Danish Girl” which I would highly recommend, and “Breakfast on Pluto” is certainly worth watching.

      Some not mentioned (yet) by anyone: “Soldier’s Girl” (great movie but with a real downer of an ending); “Une Novelle Amie”; “Different for Girls”; “The Crying Game” (too depressing to be a favorite of mine); “Transamerica” (even though the main character, a pre-op TS is played by a GG)

          Hi Cahira
          Well, it looks like “A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story” might be hard to find. It’s not on NETFLIX (which is my main rental place). Looks like if I were an Amazon “Prime” member I might be able to stream it. Trailers on youtube seem like a CD movie I’d want to see.

          I’ll keep it in mind if an opportunity comes up. Thanks for the recommendation!

      There are so many good ones that are not on the list.  Obviously Rocky Horror, one of my all-time favorite films, which I watch more often than just Halloween.  I remember going to the theatre to watch it in the late 1970s and having the appropriate props (toast, newspaper, water gun, cards, etc).  And Some Like it Hot is still one of my favorites as well. That one takes me back  (and maybe gives away my age).  Also on my list are:  To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar; The Crying Game; Transamerica; Laurance Anyways; and Soldier’s Girl. Thanks for the great question Fiona.

      Hugs, Krista

      Not seen many of those listed – those I have seen are ‘comedic’ to say the least! But from the comments I ought to watch The Danish Girl and, since my Wife absolutely loves Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders anyone?), I’ll definitely be seeing Breakfast On Pluto…

      I’ve had a hard time enjoying The Rocky Horror Show in the past (repression, self-hatred y’all know where I’m coming from :-), but now I am ‘out’ it’s a fantastic rule-busting film, especially since it’s soooo old, jeez – back in the 70’s the closet’s were lead-lined and nailed shut!

      Good on Richard O’Brien for busting all the rules ‘back in the day’

      Great topic, Fiona.

      It’s definitely “The Danish Girl” for me. With a few notable exceptions (e.g., Boys Don’t Cry), most of the films on your list employ cross dressing for comedic effect.  Nothing wrong with that – they’re all great movies.  The Danish Girl is an intense, highly-personal examination of one individual’s transgender journey in all its triumph and tragedy.  I think there’s plenty in this film that would, in whole or in part, resonate with almost everyone here at CDH, regardless of where one falls on the gender spectrum.

      Also on my list is Dallas Buyers Club for its portrayal of Rayon (Jared Leto), a transgender woman  living with AIDS who becomes Ron Woodroof’s (played by Matthew McConaughey) business partner in the Dallas Buyers Club.  (Editorial note: this was back when it was still possible for me to consider McConaughey a serious actor, before he started doing those stupid car commercials!).

        And who don’t love Candy and the rest of the Warhol/Factory crew?

        Can’t tell you how honored I was to become FB pals (on me boy? side there) with Holly Woodlawn before her passing.

      Hmm, I’ve only seen one on your list (Tootsie). I must get out more…

      When I was young I was fascinated by two movies: the well known “Some Like it Hot” (cue Fiona groaning that she hadn’t put it on the list) and Danny La Rue in “Our Miss Fred”. Every time they appeared on the TV I watched them. I wonder if my parents noticed?

      I watched for the first time a couple of movies last year, both of which I’d recommend for perhaps differing reasons: “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” and “The Danish Girl”.

      I do remember seeing Divine in “Polyester” at the cinema with “Odorama” (scratch and sniff cards.) That was fun!

        Hi Jasmine,

        Like you, I don’t know most of the movies listed. The Danish Girl is a timeless drama that is easy to relate to. I find almost any movie with a CD or TS theme usually will hold my interest.
