Monika Treut
Documentary : 99' / Trans, Community, Bodies, Classic, Gender Studies

An illuminating and compassionate look at the world of transgender identity, as seen through portraits of some of San Francisco’s leading gender mixers. Whether by birth or by choice, sometimes with the assistance of hormones or surgical prostheses, we meet those who blur the lines of male and female.
