Since most court cases involving transgender people discuss genitals at great length, I thought it appropriate that the genitals get to say their piece! Trannymals Go To Court is a fairy tale with a cast of eight fierce and fiery talking genitals who expose harmful legal practices, speak up for gender self-identification, and spread unapologetic tranny pride. Trannymals are friendly, googley-eyed creatures who set out to make the invisible visible and turn shame into celebration, with reverence and irreverence - until we respect and cherish every single body.

Trannymals Go To Court is the sequel to the successful film, Trannymal.


DYLAN VADE is a transgender attorney, educator, and artist who co-founded the Transgender Law Center in San Francisco.

ABE BERNARD is a transgender activist, filmmaker, and photographer.
