The Film

In this time of unprecedented visibility for transgender people, trans men still largely remain invisible.

Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps changes that. Since its first performance, the one-man tour de force has used laughter and deep personal insight to allow one audience at a time to see the unseen, to hear the unheard, and to know the unknown.

The Filmmakers

SCOTT TURNER SCHOFIELD
(SKO-feeld)

Scott is an award winning actor and diversity speaker.

His purpose in life is to inspire Hollywood, your school, your job, and your family to embrace transgender people.

One of his generation’s trailblazers in the movement for transgender liberation, since 2002 Schofield has used a successful mix of storytelling and advocacy to change policies at educational institutions, corporations, and spiritual centers. Using his gift for building bridges in traditional and conservative communities, he continues to take action in the movement toward full civil rights and social acceptance as a consultant, coach and spokesperson.

After 12+ years as an internationally- acclaimed theatre artist, Schofield became the first openly transgender actor on daytime television, and the first female-to-male person in a major recurring role on broadcast TV as Nick on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful. Poised to follow the trajectory of former soap stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, Schofield hopes to transition to the silver screen as film’s first leading (trans)man.
