The text for options #2,4,6,7, and 9 may be a bit unclear: could you use the format you used for the others? For example, even some viewers who watch "Orange Is the New Black" may not remember all of the characters' names and may not know if the names are actors or characters so I think doing what you do in some other options would be helpful:

Sophia Bursett played by Laverne Cox

(or Laverne Cox as Sophia Bursett)

Thank you! : )

Mario, Peter reminded us that March 31st is Trans Day of Visibility so we thought that would be a good day for this to go live if that's ok with you.

It's ok and I would like to seize the opportunity to say that next sunday is PI day – I learned that in this forum – and I also have an idea on the subject if you'd be so kind to consider, thank you

You could put Nia Nal's superhero alter ego in parentheses, it is Dreamer.

Hey @mariojacobs 

Just something for your consideration:

  • Your description largely focuses on the characters (and the actors who play them);
  • However, your final line asks the question, "Which is your favorite show."

I hinted above that these could be different. (In my case, for example, Sabrina is my favorite of the shows listed, but Nia Nal from Supergirl is my favorite of the characters listed.)

I just want to be sure that the phrasing of your poll question is in line with your "vision" for the poll. (Again, using myself as an example, my answer to the question is Chilling... Sabrina, although Nia from Supergirl is my favored character.)

Peace.

Thank you, indeed, I could write the title

Shows Featuring Transgender Characters Played by Transgender Actors

but I think it will be too long.

the focus is really the show.

@Tsarstepan 

Have you finished Season 4? 

I'm 3 or 4 episodes in... not finding it as engaging as the previous 3 seasons.

Funny that you should mention that. I completely stalled out before the quarter mark of the first episode of season 4. Part of the reason? Sabrina just falling into her stupid decisions process that she goes in and out of throughout the entire series.
