We're Live Tweeting The Danish Girl


So I've never seen a transgender themed film. Okay, cards on the table, I once caught part of the Rodney Dangerfield vehicle Ladybugs on TV on time. Also I watched three episodes of Orange is the New Black but I hated Piper so much I couldn't watch another episode. But I've never seen Girls Don't Cry, TransAmerica, Transparent, or Girl Meets Boy.

So, for my first real viewing of a transgender movie, join me and my partner as we watch The Danish Girl and live tweet our thoughts!

    1. Hmmm. Perhaps I should read the book. Generally books are better than the movie (with the exceptions of Goodfellas, DieHard, The Princess Bride, Trainspotting, Fight Club, most of the Bond franchise...hang on...maybe movies are better!).

  3. It was a good movie! I watched it with a friend while in theaters - there were a few parts that seemed different from Lili Elbe's life, but movies sort of do that to reality.

    1. Honestly I don't know much of the real story so I'll be going with the Hollywood version. All I know about it was that some people thought Danish Girl was a little too close to those old forced feminzation fiction stories people used to post online. We'll see! Hope you can follow along with us on Twitter.
