Experiencing Interruptions?

The Things That Make Us

The Things That Makes us is a short film about the effects hormones can have on your body as a trans person. Mainstream narratives often sensationalise the experiences of trans people with medical interventions, but this film explores the issue of hormones in more depth in a honest, bold and vulnerable way.
