First Cut: The Boy Who Was Born A Girl

Friday, September 4 on 4

Jon is a typical teenage boy in all respects except one: he was born a girl. Jon can remember feeling male since he was only five years old. Having grown up always feeling different to the girls in school, it was impossible to identify as female. He has now been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, and is embarking on an extraordinary journey of transition. Director Julia Moon follows Jon and his mother through the first three months of Jon’s life-changing treatment as the testosterone pushes his female body into male puberty.
