Gendernauts: A Journey Through Shifting Identities
A film by Monika Treut

84 minutes, color, 1999



An illuminating and compassionate look at the world of transgender identity, as seen through portraits of some of San Francisco's leading gender mixers. Whether by birth or by choice, sometimes with the assistance of hormones or surgical prostheses, we meet those who blur the lines of male and female.

Filmmaker Monika Treut (Virgin Machine, Seduction: The Cruel Woman) elicits testimonials from a diverse array of personalities, as well as expert opinions from sex celebrity Annie Sprinkle and the "Goddess of Cyberspace" Sandy Stone. "Treut's intention was clearly to affirm the humanity of the intersexed, transgendered and transsexual individuals she encountered, and she has succeeded." (from The New York Times)

Featuring Max Wolf Valerio, Jordy Jones, Texas Tomboy, Stafford, Hida, Tornado, Annie Sprinkle & Sandy Stone.
