On Trans Women In Vietnam

Via Gay Star News:
A short film about trans women in Vietnam made by LGBT rights organization ICS has been watched over 200,000 times on YouTube. The film follows Yuki and her friends, showing the people behind the label 'pêdê' - the title of the film - a abusive term for trans women in Vietnam. 'We decided to name it "Pêdê" - the word that society still uses to stigmatize transgender people - as a way to have a closer look at a familiar yet taboo topic,' says ICS in the description of the video.
The film is in Vietnamese, but you can watch it with English subtitles by clicking over to YouTube and pressing the CC button.
