Synopsis

Over time, transsexuals have fought against being pressured into mandated stealth, stereotypical homosexuals, an extension of 'queer', and now into being redefined as 'trans'. Is the current interpretation of 'transness' now the true self-expression of transsexuals? Or is it yet another coerced self-interpretation and an imposed self-expression that may work for some, but not for others? Are some transsexuals' minds and bodies colonized, yet again? Within a framework of gender-torture and imperialistic governance, many transsexual life experiences are manufactured, destroyed or erased. What does this do to the individuals subjected to such experiences? How are people manufactured into what is acceptable, but not who they are? What would it take for society, service providers, friends, and allies to recognize this? How can individual transsexuals finally realize their own dreams, explore their own selves, and be celebrated for their authentic complexities?
