Transparent Season 4 Release Date
Transparent season 4 is debuting on Amazon Prime on Friday, September 22. The cast and creators unveiled the release date and first trailer to People.com as part of a statement that also criticized President Trump’s transgender military ban. It reads in part:
“At Transparent we believe in the integrity of the trans community, which we know firsthand because we are all either trans or allies to the trans community. It is a revolutionary act for a trans person to simply leave the house and walk down the street. We tap into the incredible history of survival the trans community has achieved against all odds, knowing that our fight is noble and on the side of justice and human rights.”
