Introduction to the Film

Duration: 02:18

We meet Natalie, Tori and Jamie who are all coming out to the world as gay or transgender. 17 year old Natalie was born a boy, but now wants to dress and live fully as a girl. Natalie’s mum is reeling from the shock of the news and is finding it very difficult to accept that her ‘son’ is now her ‘daughter’. 17 year old Tori feels she was bullied at school for being a lesbian. She wants to come out to her new friends at beauty college so she can become closer to them, but she’s terrified after her previous experiences. 19 year old Jamie hasn’t told his Uni course-mates that he was born a girl.
