Hey there,

A lot of people here always talk about how to find good LGBT movies, and others wonder how they can see stuff like this, since they are concerned about renting it, or someone finding it at home if they do rent it, etc. So, this seems like a worthwhile thing to check out.

Dailymotion recently launched a gay and lesbian channel, and now they are offering a free transgender documentary.

Someone report back and let us know how the movie is!




Dailymotion, the world's largest independent video sharing site, today announced several initiatives expanding the site’s independent film offerings.
