New York City
Nate came out as a trans man years ago. Confidently. He’s made friends, had lovers, created community as a proud trans man. Then, he joins a book club, not realizing it is a “space for only women and femmes.” In this club, he starts to question whether his proud identity is his true one, whether it is proud at all, and if he cares to come clean and lose the one bit of structure in his life that the book club has given him. With contradicting identities flying around, self-doubt eating everyone alive, and enough book references to please any English Lit professor… The FTM Book Club asks: what is queer masculinity? How do we stay sure of ourselves? And: How real is community, if we don’t understand our own?
