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.

127 full stories comprise one epic life – pre, during, and post-transition – including stories not at all related to transition but that reveal Scott’s experience and perspective on being a man.

As a live theatre show, audiences would call out numbers, from 1 to 127, to hear 6-8 stories in one show – meaning every performance was unique. This “Choose Your Own Adventure” format translates to the filmed project, too: audiences can access the stories – as short films – through a web platform. The episodic structure allows the viewer to watch in any order they wish: by number, or by themes (such as transition, family, sex, comedy, or anger, to name a few). The best short films will be collected in a feature-length film.
