Byron Bay, Australia December 30, 2012: Sexing The Transman has won it’s first film award.
Sexing The Transman the documentary has won the Jury Prize Award this year at the Queer Fruits Film Festival in Australia. What an honor and a shock for me. When i set out to make this film it was really more of something I felt a need to help educate the world on transmale sexuality, because my pornography only appeals to some but I know the need to learn about sexuality is so important, so this film came from my desire to help educate the non porn lovers of the the world.
So when I get invited to show my film at festivals that is always such and honor for me but to actually win an award. WOW super cool and I feel so much gratitude to all the festivals that keep pushing to have my film even though it has some sexual content.
Thank you so very much Queer Fruits Film Festival and Akkadia Ford the festival director for honoring my film this year.
