Sexing the Transman is a groundbreaking mainstream documentary about FTM sexualities. Buck Angel elicits intimate, in-depth conversations with transmen and those who love them—about how their bodies, sexualities, and identities are affected by the medical and social processes of gender transition.
The film highlights how transitioning can open up a greater sense of freedom, desire, and willingness to explore new types of pleasure. It includes interviews with Margaret Cho, who discusses her identity as a queer bottom attracted to masculinity, Trans man comedian Ian Harvie, who reflects on his dysphoria and how his relationship with his body and his sexuality has changed post-transition. Musician trans man Lucas Silveira discusses with Buck how watching his films helped him to understand his body in ways he never thought possible.
Graphic excerpts of transmen playing and proudly exhibiting their wares are interwoven with highly personal dialogue.
Buck Angel said about this project, “I am so excited to show this level of diversity in transmen and their sexualities for the first time on film.”
Motivational speaker, LGBT advocate, and producer Buck Angel has created an innovative educational documentary that has broken through the barriers of censorship to be shown at film festivals worldwide.
