Boy Meets Girl

A still from the Boy Meets Girl Pilot starring trans actor Rebecca Root

Welcome to the Trans Comedy Award

Trans Comedy joined forces with BBC Writersroom to launch The Trans Comedy Award: a talent search to encourage writers to promote a positive portrayal of Transgender people in mainstream comedy.

This has been won by Elliot Kerrigan and is currently being made into a comedy called Boy Meets Girl by Tiger Aspect

The Trans Comedy Award opened up an opportunity for the transgender community and members of the general public to portray transgender characters and the transgender experience in a fresh affirming manner, without resorting to cliché or stereotype.

We looked for original comedy sitcoms, comedy dramas or sketch shows featuring transgender characters and/or themes and written for television. An award of up to a maximum of £5000 was allocated to the selected writer in order that they may develop a pilot or taster.
