Transparent is a 2006 documentary film about the experiences of 19 female-to-male transgender parents as they are coming to terms with gender transitioning. The title, "Transparent", is a play on the words "trans" and "parent", while suggesting the invisibility of transgender parenting in contemporary discourse.

The film was featured in the September 2006 issue of Curve magazine as one of the Ten Must-See Gender Documentaries and one of the best examples of New Trans Cinema, alongside Transamerica, Boys Don't Cry and Soldier's Girl.[1]


The film has mainly been screened at LGBT film festivals around the world. Transparent made its Romanian debut at the 2007 GayFest, Bucharest's annual LGBT festival.
