When we change, can the people we love come with us? For fifty years, P. Carl lived as a girl and then a queer woman, building a career and a loving marriage while waiting to realize himself in full. When he decides to affirm his gender at a pivotal political moment in America, his transition puts everything—family, career, friendships—at stake.
Adapted from P. Carl’s acclaimed memoir and co-directed by Diane Paulus and P. Carl, Becoming a Man is a story about the courage—and the community—we need to become ourselves.
