CINE[STHESIA]: Funny Kinda Guy

Join National Library of Scotland at Kelvin Hall in celebration of LGBT History Month as we screen Funny Kinda Guy (2005) from the Moving Image Archive.

This touching and musical feature length documentary, directed by Travis Reeves, follows musician Simon de Voil through the beginnings of his medical gender transition.

Set against Simon's wistful countdown that he will soon lose his signature alto singing voice due to taking testosterone, we journey alongside him for eighteen months from Scotland to Australia, becoming intimately involved in these shifts of body and identity. We hear about what it all means to Simon, as well as the personal histories with his partner, parents and growing up trans.

Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at the 2005 Melbourne Queer Film Festival, this film feels poignantly relevant as ever to today’s urgency for transgender representation on screen.

Running time: 92 mins.
