‘My Transsexual Summer’ on Channel 4 has been attracting large audiences. It has drawn criticism from within the trans community (and indeed elsewhere) for its sensationalism, selective editing, dodgy voicovers- not least because of the high hopes that accompanied the launch of the series, after Trans Media Watch were consulted over the making of the series.
On the other hand, there has been an increase in awareness of trans issues among the cisgendered viewers, and a lot of positive response.
