With Laverne Cox becoming the first trans woman to grace the cover of Time Magazine and Caitlyn Jenner wining the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs, cultural conversations about trans rights and visibility are being brought to the fore. As Sean Baker's widely acclaimed film Tangerine -- which follows two trans sex workers in LA's unofficial red light district -- continues to garner praise in international screenings, we're also looking forward Gaby Dellal's upcoming release About Ray. 

Starring the exquisite Elle Fanning as Ramona/Ray, the film follows a young girl's journey as she transitions into a boy. Released on September 18, it's the film that everybody is talking about. If, like us, you can't wait till then, you can catch a glimpse of what's to come in the new heart-wrenching trailer below. Warning: it will make you cry, but it will also make you smile :)
