Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives (2010)
Transgender and gay activists are currently boycotting the film, which is running this weekend and next at the Tribeca Film Festival. Activists are arguing the use of the word “tranny” is offensive, as is the violence trans women are subjected to in the film. But the director says the movie is a statement against that violence, and points to the many trans actresses who appear in the film. He recently agreed to “greek” out the word “Tra**ies in the film’s title.
