The film stars Calpernia Addams as Ava, Andrea James as Joyce, and Joel Lambert as Mike. “Transproofed” explores the controversy of when (or whether) to come out as transgender in a romantic relationship. Ava’s showgirl friends are all openly transgender, but like many trans women, Ava dreams of living a quiet life where her trans status is not an issue. Ava’s friend Joyce urges her to go “stealth,” slang for not divulging one’s trans status. Joyce urges Ava to follow her example: to tone down her look and to get her place “transproofed,” slang for hiding any evidence that one is trans. As Joyce pushes Ava to hide more and more of her past and her identity, Ava begins to wonder if it’s worth it.
