The chronicle of a girl who decided to become a transgender man and learned to express himself and overcome his tribulations through art.
Show me a person who claims they have no skeletons in their closet and I’ll show you a liar.
Writer/director James Land follows his fellow Devonian Kay Jane Browning who got mocked, bullied, and beaten up as a little girl only to grow up a proud young man who transcended both genders’ limitations, and became a person of his own; an artist.
It doesn’t take money to tell your story. It takes to be truthful to it. It takes to say it out loud to feel liberated. Let haters laugh at you, among others, they are only shameful, dishonest, and deceiptive. Because the rest of the world will follow you, engage with you, and give you a standing ovation for who you really are. Hats off to both James and Kay for bringing this story to the surface.

Watching Kay’s story, I couldn’t help but wonder, is it our generation who’s gonna put an end to discrimination? Against people who just look different than we are. Against people who are physically and/or mentally attracted to whoever they choose to? Against people who just happen to believe in something different than we do? Is it gonna be us who’s gonna make this world welcome to EVERYONE?
Show me a person who found the courage and strength to reveal their skeletons in their closet and I’ll show you a hero.

I have not seen anything about this film before. I will put this on the lust but I must admit it is closer to the bottom than the top.
It’s only 10′. Very well made.
