Abstract

Gender as a social construction upon sexes, according to Judith Butler, is a performative act, there is no distinction between normal and abnormal as it is part of performance. As part of minority groups, the social construction about transgender is often in poor perspective. They are seen as funny characters who become stock of joke and attract cynical expression since they behaves abnormally. Though not quite different with real life, the depiction of transgender characters in movies is more various. This paper is going to compare the idea of how transgender characters play his roles in Kinky Boots movie and Realita Cinta dan Rock ‘n Roll. The first movie’s setting is in British society, while the second one is in Indonesian society. By comparing and examining the representation of transgender in different background, this study enriches the idea that this minority group is depicted in more or less similar.
