New HBO film features Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox was nominated for an Emmy for her performance in Orange Is The New Black.

The trailer for the highly anticipated HBO documentary, The Trans List, was released this week.

The Trans List takes a look at influential and diverse trans people of our time for a deeper look into trans identity.

Produced by Janet Mock and directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, the film features a host of famous trans celebrities and activists including, actress Laverne Cox and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner.

Other personalities include Stonewall activist Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, model Caroline Cossey, army sergeant Shane Ortega and adult entertainer Buck Angel.

Each interview was filmed in 60-90 minutes and edited down to an hour long documentary.

The film offers personal, first-hand accounts from trans people, culminating into a strong list of diverse trans stories.

Greenfield-Sanders adds The Trans List to his award-winning repertoire, alongside The Out List and The Black List.

When asked about the filming process, Greenfield-Sanders remarks how candidly the interviewees responded to producer Janet Mock: ‘[she] brought a level of comfort’, he told NBC.

‘I am endlessly impressed with her. She’s a spirited, brilliant, thoughtful, thought-provoking person,’ he said.

The film is officially released on 5 December.
