From the archive
This film was last shown on 8 June 2019
Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family, but this poses unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man. Deciding to carry his own baby took years of soul searching, but he was unprepared for the reality of pregnancy, both physically and challenging society's fundamental understanding of gender and family. To him what feels pragmatic, to others feels confronting; this wasn't part of his plan. Against a backdrop of hostility towards trans people, he is forced to confront his naivety. Made with unprecedented access and collaboration, it’s an audacious and lyrical story about what makes us who we are.
