Without a doubt, Transparent is one of the best and most progressive shows on television. And creator Jill Soloway recently did an interview with Vulture to talk about the new season, which will see Maura wanting to undergo gender-confirmation surgery to continue her transition into womanhood.
But Soloway makes it very clear that being transgender is not all about the surgery.
And the show has done a brilliant job of exploring the complexities and intricacies of Maura’s day-to-day changes thus far.
She goes onto to say,
In the interview, Soloway also admits that men who identify as cisgender should not be playing transgender roles on television, and says she would taken this into account had she been as informed as she is today several years ago.
We love how open, honest, and tbh— informative — Soloway is about these incredibly important issues, because the more we know, the better we can be and do. Also, we can’t wait for the new season of this complex show that pushes ALL the boundaries.
