T-Boys is a peer support group for masculine spectrum trans people in Leeds and Sheffield.
You may be aware that some members of T-Boys were involved in E.D.E.N Film Productions’ Trashing Transphobia film project last year. E.D.E.N has now been announced as a People’s Project finalist and is competing to win up to £50,000 of National Lottery funding to bring transgender film festival Transforming Cinema to Sheffield.
The Transforming Cinema project would train members of the LGBT community in filmmaking skills to create films raising awareness of issues affecting the transgender and gender nonconforming community. These films would then be screened at a brand new Transforming Cinema festival, organised by E.D.E.N and held on Transgender Day of Remembrance in Sheffield.
This is a really great opportunity to improve media representation of trans people by empowering us to tell our own stories in our own way and educate the wider public about the issues we face.
