“Maybe Gender is like life? And like time too? In that it doesn’t actually exist and yet our world revolves around the expectations we put on it.”
Join us for an online show irl. Travel back to the quaint days of dial up and MSN, where you’ll follow two strangers on their journeys to become who they always were.
A funny, moving and nostalgic story of transition.
From teen to adult,
From MySpace to TikTok,
From cis to trans.
