Student Pride was brilliantly organised and it was a genuine thrill to see them focusing on the ‘T’ aspect this year. Here’s the link If you would like to watch the debate, chaired by Evan Davis (of Dragon’s Den & Radio 4’s Today show)
Sadly, Lewis was unwell, so our bro Reuben stepped in last minute. We were also joined by Octavian, who will also be featured in the 25 new films we are making as part of Patchwork with All About Trans.
Earlier that day, we were interviewed by Dylan, an Irish trans-guy and film-maker. We had a fantastic chat about transition and the wave of change. Can’t wait to see the final edit.
National Student Pride, 22nd Feb
Join us for a talk about My Genderation around 4pm at Student Pride
LGBT HISTORY MONTH: TRANS* FILM SUNDAY AT JUBILEE LIBRARY, 23RD FEB
On Sunday 23rd Feb, from 1.30pm, at the Jubilee Library, join Lewis & I for a special FREE film event. Trans* comedian and actor Ben Pritchard will be introducing the following trans* based films, created in Brighton & beyond:
Trans*Symposium: Fox, Alice and E-J discuss gender binary & whether it is important to be “out” or “stealth” as a trans* person. Produced by James Marcus Tucker and Michael Urwin. (15 mins)
Filmed & edited by Raphael Fox and Lewis Hancox. We will be discussing the ‘My Genderation’ film project and showing some of our work. (25 mins)
STILL BLACK: A Portrait of Black Transmen is brought to life by the stories of six thoughtful, eloquent and diverse transmen. Each man brings a colourful and complex richness as he describes his relationship to himself, as well as others in his life. (78 minutes)
Hope to see you there! Please share this post, thanks :)
Freddy McConnell wrote a fantastic trans / gender 101 for The Guardian. Expect more of where this came from. Great to know there’s a clever FTM guy in the midst of the mainstream media who’s doing some informative gatekeeping. Keep up the super work Freddy and thanks for the plug!

Thanks to everyone who has supported us, particularly Alonglines and Sophie Moore.
We have an important announcement in the next couple weeks involving Channel 4 and On Road Media / All About Trans. This will be revealed in a short video, as we review the past 12 months and share our 2014 plans. It’s going to be a busy and rewarding year! Thanks to everyone for all their support and love so far; it feels like the right time to be creating films about gender variance.

Yesterday, Alice and I chatted to the Latest crew, which are producing QTube (Freeview, Channel 8). The segment was very fast indeed and we didn’t have much time at all, however they are showing a short clip of her film, which you can see here in it’s entirety. I’m also being filmed for their other section, The Symposium, which involves four of us on a couch, drinking tea and putting the world to rights.
There’s a short ‘article’ In the News section of The Source magazine, about My Genderation being selected for this year’s Pink 101. Thanks folks! Love the title ‘Pink Fox’
Tonight, we are off to Gfest, which is showing our Alice film and afterwards, we are all (Lewis, Alice and myself) taking part in a Q&A.
We also have had some great news about a really massive project which will take up a considerable chunk of 2014, and will involve making a batch of short films, which will be associated with some of the best support groups in the UK, and (fingers crossed) may have some MASSIVE distribution. We will reveal more soon!
Thanks to everyone for your endless support. We have been operating as My Genderation for just 11 months now and there has been so much momentum. We will have a proper celebration in December, and have a look back over the past year.
The 1st film in our special Sparkle Pride series. Meet the awesome Alice!
