What Sex Am I? follows a group of transgender individuals struggling to make their way in every strata of 1980s America. From finding employment to finding acceptance, the first question the world forces them to ask is always, “What Sex Am I?”

Our take

Resounding with a radical compassion, Lee Grant’s groundbreaking documentary beautifully captures the intimacies of transgender lives in a stiflingly conservative 1980s America. Strikingly ahead of its time, What Sex Am I? embraces those who dare to live their truth amid insurmountable prejudices.
