Kinky Boots - Despite the name, this film is sexually tame, although they do acknowledge the concept of "sexy" (scary!). It's not a Christian film, per se, but has wonderful Christian themes. The main character has through a personal journey, deciding what to do with the family shoe business he has inherited. A genderqueer drag queen allies with him, teaching him using several Christological methods like welcoming the outcasts, dying to self, and walking a mile in a transvestite's shoes. Based on a true story.

The Believers - The Believers is a feature documentary that shatters assumptions about faith, gender, and religion. Built around the world's first transgender gospel choir, the film portrays the choir's dilemma - how to reconcile their gender identity with the widespread belief that changing one's gender goes against the word of God.
