The list below was compiled from multiple sources which indexed films relating to transgender, transsexuality, sex-change, transvestism, crossdressing, and drag, and it is intended to be a complete index to such films.  Some films below have only a minor reference, e.g. in Grande Illusion there is a small scene of World War I prisoners putting on a variety show including men in drag.  Other films are focused on transgender, e.g. Stonewall.  Hardcore films are excluded.   Made-for-Television films are also not included.

All links are to the Internet Movie Database where there is extensive information on most films.  

A relatively short list of films considered especially notable by the IFGE office staff has also been compiled

If you spot any errors or would like to add certain movies for consideration in this list, please e-mail us: info@ifge.org.
