My Transsexual Summer poster


Channel 4 follows seven transgender men and women as they come together to share their intimate and ongoing experiences of changing gender. These seven bright, funny and articulate individuals give uniquely personal insights into what it's like to change gender in Britain in 2011. Each of the seven is trying to live in a society that routinely misunderstands them, regularly mocks them, and all too frequently assaults them, just because they are different. For five weekends over the summer, this group come to a retreat where they can support each other, understand each other, and guide one another through the next critical stages of their journey to becoming the men and women they have always wanted to be.

Episode summary:

Sarah, the most recently transitioned woman amongst the group, has to find a place to live. She moved from her home in Jersey to Swansea two months ago so that she could live full-time as a woman. So far, being at the retreat has given her hope: she's got six friends to call on for support, she looks and feels better, and has taken the enormous step of coming out to her mum. Now she wants to move again and make a new life in liberal, free-thinking Brighton. But can she find flat mates who will allow her to move in? At the retreat, everyone's talking and thinking about relationships. Fifty-two-year old Karen is still recovering from genital surgery where her penis was inverted to create the vagina she's always wanted. Previously she's always preferred women, but now she's started to see a man, and that gets the group thinking about the difficulties of dating. At 26, Donna's a beautiful transwoman, and single. Now she's determined to find the perfect man. On the last day of the retreat, the group invite their parents and friends to the house to celebrate a remarkable summer. What have they learned from each other? They all make speeches in the emotional highpoint of the series.
