Cast of Transparent releases pro-transgender Public Service Announcement

Cast of Transparent releases pro-transgender Public Service Announcement

Amazon’s hit web TV dramedy, Transparent, is about a senior aged father who transitions from presenting as male to presenting as female. He then comes out to his adult children. The show has completed 3 seasons and has been picked up for a fourth by Amazon. The cast and creators have released a PSA about Gavin Grimm, the transgender boy we most recently covered here and here, who is suing his local school district for not allowing him to use the boys’ restroom.

This PSA was most likely in the can before the Transparent cast was aware that the US Supreme Court had vacated the Appeals Court’s decision in favor of Gavin and returned the case to that court or that would likely have been mentioned in the video.

The main image is a screen capture of the title card shown at the beginning of Transgender episodes.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
