The Skin I Live In
Sometimes the TG fiction community may looked like a closed community, focusing on themes never found in traditional media.
That is actually not true. There are important artists out there who make use of TG themes, and I suspect at least some of them share the interests of the readers of this blog.
Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar has introduced many transgender persons in his movies, but not one of these movies have been as explicit as La Piel que Habito or The Skin I Live In.
The movie is loosely based on the French book Tarantula by Thierry Jonquet. But although the book deviates a bit from the plot of the movie, the novel could also have been published as a story on one of the main TG fiction portals.
Here you will find one of the traditional TG themes: A young boy abducted by mad scientist, is being turned into a woman.
