Abstract

This article will explore the need for transliteracy in relation to reading independent gender–diverse screen texts, with examples from the Trans New Wave of Cinema and advocates a transliterate approach to reading transgender films, embedded within queer and transgender social structures and across media, to provide greater meaning and insight into the films. The article is a first publication of use of the term transliteracy in relation to reading gender–diverse trans films as an innovative theoretical approach.
