About:

Fourteen years after winning Outstanding Documentary Feature here at Outfest Los Angeles, Showtime returns with the long-awaited sequel to The Opposite Sex, their groundbreaking portrait of life in transition for two transgender individuals — Rene and Jamie — awaiting gender-confirmation surgery. While trans visibility and social awareness have increased in the interim, they find that living authentically comes with its own set of unique challenges both at home and in the world around them.
