Viewers of the film will hear about the lives of eight of the patients who came to the Transgender Tuesdays clinic starting in 1993. Their stories reach back to some of the "bad old days" of the 1950s, recalling the sexual freedom movement of the 1960s, drug ravages of the '70s, Women's and GLB (and finally T) Liberation in the '80s, the HIV epidemic and queer activism of the '90s.
These true tales reveal what transgender life was like over those decades on the streets of San Francisco and around the country -- and make it clear that it is still no bed of roses today. Clinic staff and stars of the community make cameo appearances. But it is the lives of these transgender heroes (often unknown even by younger trans folk today) that provide pride in the present and hope for the future.
