It is England in the 1940s, 50s. A small girl is growing up knowing she wants nothing more than to be a boy. Well into her forties she discovers she is a lesbian. She is surprised, amazed. Why not, considering she was born into a time when same sex relationships between women were secrets buried deep and dark? She relishes her new life but old longings linger. Friends are transitioning. Now in her seventies, she faces a conundrum what if…what if…what if.
WRITTEN IN THE BODY
told by Jan Andrews
Special Guest: Two-Spirited Trans Poet Gwen Benaway, reading from work that digs deep into her experiences of transitioning.
