How Hollywood is Failing Transgender and Non-Binary Characters and Why the Indies Aren’t Enough Anymore

When it comes to transgender and non-binary representation, Hollywood has a lot of work to do. Days after Mj Rodriguez made history as the first transgender actor nominated for an Emmy in a lead role, GLAAD released their annual Studio Responsibility Index and found that there were exactly zero transgender or non-binary characters in major Hollywood films.
