What’s it like growing up transgender?

‘In My Shoes’ asks five transgender young people what it’s like to be them – the awesome times, the challenges and how they’ve gotten through them.

This short, collaborative documentary film is an initiative of the Transgender Anti-Violence Project at The Gender Centre Inc., NSW and is produced by Tahlia Trijbetz, the Transgender Anti-Violence Project (TAVP) Officer.

It is co-directed by Walkley Award winning journalist, Monique Schafter (Hungry Beast / 7.30 ABC TV) and award winning director/cinematographer, Mat Govoni.

Thank you to development consultant, Kate Doak.

‘In My Shoes’ features the original rap “Spring” by transgender artist, Harri Harding.

We hope that this film will serve as a resource for the wider community to better understand the issues facing young transgender and gender diverse people. We also hope that it encourages transgender and gender diverse people of all ages to come forward and access support if they need it.
