Kate Bornstein Is A Queer & Pleasant Danger (72mins):

A self-described trans-dyke, reluctant-polyamorist, sadomasochist, and recovering Scientologist, Kate Bornstein has been instrumental in raising transgender visibility. She is a role model for a generation of people that is learning how to define its gender and sexuality, and survive in a world that frequently greets them with hate and hostility. By turns meditative and playful, the documentary portrait Kate Bornstein Is A Queer and Pleasant Danger invites us on a thought-provoking journey through Kate’s world to seek answers to some of life’s biggest questions.

With selected shorts from 'My Genderation' (10mins):

'My Genderation' film project was set up to record the experiences and perspectives of gender variance. Our mission is to create engaging short films which accurately represents individual journeys with gender expression and self-identity. We have complete empathy for being filmed, after sharing our own journeys on My Transsexual Summer (Ch4). While the My Genderation films are made by trans people about other trans people, they are for a much wider audience, to allow people to connect and empathise with individual journeys.
