Born Male Living Female
1 x 60'
An in-depth look at the complex and fascinating lives of four male-to-female transgender individuals living in New York City. Set against a backdrop of a world slow to grasp the changing transgender landscape, these courageous and determined women bravely challenge the status quo in their pursuit of the American dream.
Running the gamut of professions, from model to musician, fashion executive to counsellor and escort, each woman will confront a variety of personal issues – identity, sexuality, love, surgery, career and discrimination. For these women, transition is the beginning, not the end result. This documentary is about reinventing the self and rising against all odds. It is about the human spirit and the ability to hope – hope that people will see your true self despite your physical trappings.
