A Transgender Man Candidate Is Hoping to Make History-from the NY Times

The Classification Board has this morning given Melbourne Queer Film Festival the go-ahead to screen Sexing the Transman.
“The trans community will no doubt be rapt to finally be able to view a sex-positive trans documentary among the safe and supportive environment of the MQFF — it’s the first public screening of its kind in Australia, and hopefully the first of many,” MQFF director Lisa Daniel said.
“Full credit goes to the Board for acknowledging the adult film festival-going community of Melbourne is mature enough to decide what they would like to view.”
Earlier this year the Classification Board refused exemption for two films in Sydney’s Mardi Gras Film Festival line-up, Community Action Centre and In Their Room: Berlin.
The board determined the films would have been granted an X classification had they been put through the classification process in Australia.
In Sexing The Transman the world’s first transman porn actor, Buck Angel, interviews other trans men about their bodies, transitions and sexual orientation.
INFO: There are still a limited number of tickets on sale for Sexing the Transman, which screens at 10.15pm on Friday, March 16 at ACMI. Details at www.mqff.com.au

Buck Angel, you are an angel! Thank you for what you do! Your so inspiring for me, we need role models like you! I hope I can tell you a little bit about me because I feel this deep need to talk to you. My name is H, im 28 and im just starting my transition (ftm) who is pre t and already im lost with so much stacked against me. I live in a place that is not trans familiar and I have to change my life dramaticaly such as moving to another state to become myself and I dont even know if I will succeed. The pain got so bad it became unbearable to interact with people around me. I would call out of work just so I didnt have to be Tina that day. Having thoughts of succide every day to the point where I planned it out, a bottle of sleeping pills and a fifth of captain and call it good night and I almost did it. At that point I knew it was transition or bust. Im not as bold to transition in front of coworkers and friends so I quit my measly little job cashiering at a retail store and my friends havent heard from me in months. So im taking my tax return, moving to a place I dont even know just to escape my prison. I cant live a lie anymore just to make people happy but I also have a hard time explaing this to homophobic and transphobic people. So im going to go on this crazy ride to god knows where with nothing but a few belongings and what money I have. I know, sounds insaine but I hear its better than the alternative. So yeah, I mean I dont know what else to do but thank you for listening, well reading lol and I just want to tell you that you are doing an amazing job for the world to make it a better place for not only trans but everyone because your message is so profound that anyone can benifit from what u do. Thank you.
Thanks so much for your email! I am so proud of you for taking your negative situation and making it a positive one I do know how hard it is to live a lie as I tried suicide as well. That is not the answer.
You are doing the right thing and getting yourself in a place where you can be you! It might not be easy or it might just be super easy who knows but the fact that you are doing it say so much about who you are. Take the bull by the horns and go for it! I will be with you in spirit every step of the way. When you get in a bad spot just think of me pushing you and I hope that will help you!
Thank you for letting my work influence you in such a positive way! That means the world to me.
Keep in touch with me so I know how you are doing!

The film, Sexing the Transman XXX, is an intimate audio-visual tour of FTM sexuality, including interviews and graphic video of a variety of transmen. It was conceived, filmed, and directed by Buck Angel, educator, advocate, and iconic figure in redefining gender, sexual fluidity, and individual expression of identity.
Buck Angel made history rising to prominence as a female-to-male transgender adult film star, and he has used his struggles and successes as a platform to help empower people of all types and encourage self-love and acceptance. This film is one way that he is educating about the unique perspectives of transmen and working toward greater understanding in the realms of gender and human sexuality.
