10:47 Question of the Week

"I am a 19 year old M2F, I recently started HRT 3 months ago and I noticed that the left side of my body is developing more than my right side, mainly my hips and breasts, I was just wondering if this is normal and if the other side will "catch up" eventually. If not is there anything I can do to improve the receptiveness of the right side of my body to HRT?"
(From: Meredith)

Once again Australian film artists have graced us with a groudbreaking movie about gender difference, this time in a documentary that examines M2F transgenderism in great depth and with uncommon insight. Perhaps it's no accident that this remarkably wise look at gender diversity is authored by two transsexual women. Dee MacLachlan & Patricia Church, producer and director of "M2F: A Journey in Gender Identity", talk with us about the film, from inception to reception.
