SQIFF 2019
LEAP Sports Scotland presents: Man Made

Thu 3 October 2019

Trans FitCon is an all-transgender bodybuilding competition held in Atlanta, USA. Man Made follows 4 trans men stepping on the stage to compete.

Rese is a young father struggling with periods of homelessness; Dominic seeks out his family of origin, confronting an alternate history for himself; Kennie admits to himself and his loved ones who he is for the first time in his life; and Mason, a loving husband who struggles with mental illness, works daily to be the man he’s always wanted to be. We follow their emotional and physical journeys as they navigate their lives with the very real risks inherent in the current social and political climate. For the men of Man Made, it’s not about winning - it’s about being seen.

In partnership with LEAP Sports Scotland and followed by a discussion about access of trans people to sport.
