Director/screenwriter/author/artist T Cooper’s debut film has taken over LGBT Film festivals by storm and has already won a great many awards.
Bodybuilding is a hyper masculine, hyper competitive sport. T Cooper follows a number of FTM trans men who are drawn to this field with aspirations of becoming professional bodybuilders themselves. Through them, he sheds light on some unexpected truths about sex, masculinity, humanity and love.
Each of the contestants plans to take part in the Trans Fit Con competition – the world’s only bodybuilding contest for trans people. With its own intimate style, the film delivers an intriguing look on the often dangerous ways its protagonists choose to reshape and redefine themselves both physically and emotionally.
