Here's a link to the movie's website. I totally cannot wait to see this!

http://www.boymeetsgirlmovie.com/

What's more is that I'm looking at this lovely lady, Michelle Hendley, (who is transgender, btw) and I'm seeing a young lady that I can finally identify with and relate to after all these years.

Also the website has trailers for the movie and some behind the scenes stuff, too.

Looks like a good Rom com. I hope all the good bits aren't just what's in the trailer though.

It's on Vimeo. Just watched last night. Overall it's the best trans movie I've ever seen. I highly recommend it. As much as I was dissatisfied with Transparent I loved this. It was so sweet.

I'm not much for romantic comedies, but I kind of want to see this just because they've actually cast a trans actor in a trans role! It's sad that alone makes me happy.

Ripely it really isn't a romantic comedy. Not in the sense that it's usually used. It's much more of a dramedy or just plain drama. There's plenty of funny lines but that's not the focus at all.

Just an fyi, this movie is now available to purchase and watch online or you can buy the dvd on amazon.

...and my copy is in the mail as we speak. I'm excited! I've heard really good things about this movie. Like, "it's a more positive depiction of us and our struggle than TransAmerica was" and "not just in the top 10 of must see movies with a transgender character, but the #1 movie of that list"

It's also on Netflix instant video so, if you have Netflix, it's free! Thanks so much for sharing, I'm about to watch it now!

OMG! That was such a GREAT movie! It was so real and, by far, the best depiction of trans women and our struggles (and joys) that I've ever seen. On top of that, it was just a good movie all around.

Overall, a MUST WATCH!

I ordered the DVD yesterday, and it arrived in the mail today.

...too bad I'm not going to be home to watch it, but, mom is bringing it along for our get together in WI.

Speedy delivery at it's finest!

I watched it this weekend. It was great! Bring a box of tissues - you'll cry both happy and sad tears.

I just finished watching the movie and I have mixed reviews. I liked it in parts and I didn't like it in parts. The movie did a very good job at showing some of the struggles we face with acceptance. The cynic in me looked at a couple scenes in the movie and thought, "that wouldn't happen" but as a friend reminded me...it's a movie, so it's a bit of an exaggeration of the normal. Um, I wasn't expecting full-frontal in this movie so just be mindful of that. (I can't exactly have my mom watch it because she doesn't like that kind of thing) Then of course I cried at the end.

For the most part, though, the movie was definitely relate-able. Several times, Ricky said something that I would have said myself. :)

We watched it the other night with my father-in-law and sister-in-law visiting. We all enjoyed it and it speaks so many truths about being transgender.

I actually bought that movie (Boy meets Girl) because I loved it, and the cast and story. Another good movie to watch, I believe it's a made for TV movie, called Normal. Jessica Lange played the part amazingly.

While Boy meets Girl had a couple parts where I cried pretty hard, there were some parts in Normal where I fell completely apart. Both have happy endings and both are in my opinion, well made......

AWESOME Movie :)

 

FYI, if anyone didn't know, the trans star Michelle Hendley has her own Youtube channel.  I love it.  She posts sporadically, but it's always interesting and sometimes very funny.

Yes, I own the DVD.  I ordered it the minute it was available...

On a slightly funny note, I recommended the film to a cis-female co-worker.  She liked it, but her comment was,"Why didn't they cast a "real" transgender in the lead?"...  She thought Michelle was a cis-female made to look trans with "special effects" :)

      A friend at work today sent me a message he wanted to talk to me.  I was leery, because he can talk on and on, and lecture if he thinks someone's done something incorrectly.  Sigh.  I asked him what he wanted to talk to me about and he replied, "Nothing. Just something personal."  Okay.  Well, that's sounds better than, "You should have done..."  So, after my shift was over I went by to see him.   He said, "I have to thank you." "What for?" I asked. "Because, of  you I went and got help for something that's been a problem for a while and I was too embarrassed to get help." Of course, at this point my mind is going.  Is he gay?  Is he trans too?  He is a bit effeminate.  "What's happened?" I asked. He tells me he's been feeling really run down, and sleeps away his weekends for some time.  He went to the doctor, and they diagnosed him with low-T.  He's on hormones now, and may end up on estrogen blockers as well.   That's exactly why I have been open about my transition with folks.  I believed if I was living a lie, by coming out others might find the courage to stop living lies as well.  I am very happy about this.  I am glad he is getting help.

      I ponder what I would really do if it all was just handed to me tomorrow.  Would I jump in both feet or not.  It’s easy to say you want this or that and different when you can actually get it.  I know this well enough.   I’m not in a hurry to have more surgery.  SRS is not on my scope but seems like a possible step.   Like you I’m more interested in an orchy and shed my T.   But I’m still healing from my last tangle with a scalpel.    Before I go on with that I want to understand my feelings and place in all this.  I’m hoping the therapist can show/teach/explain what’s what and why.

      Back in the early 1990's I was fortunate being in a VA related counseling program for PTSD issues. My counselor was in a long term lesbian relationship, so when I broached the subject of what I intended to accomplish as a trans person, she had no qualms about writing me all the necessary letters. Prior to that I had been seeing Dr. Anne Lawrence, I know some people detest her, but she saw fit to put me on feminizing HRT and she also wrote me a letter of recommendation for SRS. Later it turned out that the endocrine specialist at the local VA hospital knew Anne, and he bought into my plan to transition and set me up for free meds. He also wrote me a letter recommending an orchiectomy and or SRS as I had complained about having to take Spironolactone as a testosterone blocker. So when I hooked up with Dr. Bowers I had both feet in the door but in the finale analysis decided that it wasn't the ultimate panacea for me. The reason I blathered all this past history out is that I felt at the time that if anything that you desire to accomplish is really valid and that important to you, then you will be manipulative and as devious as necessary to achieve what you need to. I am a bit embarrassed by putting all this out there, because in the end I dropped the ball entirely and in retrospect I have to concede that we should take our time going through the process step by step and not try to circumvent the system. It is what it is for our own good.

      I am hoping to feel “the weight” lifted.   It is nice to know there are those here that understand.

      I wish you all the best with your conversations and your marriage.  The first time I came out to my first wife it was easy and she was totally supportive.  We shopped together and she taught me make up. It was wonderful. Then we got divorced a year later and my world crumbed.   She eventually couldn’t do it any longer even though I was not truly out still being in the military.  Still a guy in public and at work or every where outside our home.   ot was crushing.  Having to go deep in hiding again. I almost took my life.  My fear of this happening again is crippling.   I hope to work through my fear and one day tell my wife now.   Good luck this weekend ❤️

      Thank you for your kind support Jani. More and more, I'm reaching the point that I realize I can't go back to my old life no matter what I do. Strangely, this is a source of courage. I have to move forward now and I feel a strange sort of calm knowing that my transition is beginning no matter what I try to do to stop it. It seems I am not letting my fear stop me from living anymore.

      I don't know much about Italian protocols in therapy but hopefully you can search online for therapists.  Might there be a society that they belong too (such as the APA) to search for members and qualifications?   I googled "therapists in Italy" and found this.  https://internationaltherapistdirectory.com/listings/italy-1/   Jani

      I love cars and all things automotive. I used to race a dedicated car; high strung race engine, full safety cage, trailered, etc.  While I no longer race since I don't have the stamina I do still have a small fleet of vehicles that I love.  I have a well equipped shop to play in.  I also love to cook and sew, always have.  While I once fretted over my "male-centric" hobbies I've found it to be a non issue.     Enjoy what you do.   Jani

      I was terribly nervous going in and walking on air on the way out as I had finally unburdened my soul to someone. This will hopefully be a good thing for your too.    Jani
    • Jani
      This was me too so you're not alone.  I found it difficult to explain to my wife something I couldn't explain to myself.  Counseling helped me a lot.     All my best.  Jani

      Being willing to sit down and talk through all of the issues she has is critical.

      Best of luck Sara! My conversation was a little different from what you're going to have, but Susan and I are closer now than we've ever been before. Over the weekend she was telling an old friend how much more pleasant I've been to have around the house since I've started transitioning. Note here is that I'm OUT out. I present as female all the time, I'll happily answer questions to the best of my ability and I'm not ashamed of being transgender. I'd rather I wasn't mind you, but I think part of being trans is making the most out of a difficult situation.   Your wife sounds like a wonderful and caring individual. You're still the person she fell in love with, you're just sharing a little more of yourself. I think it's telling that you came out to her and she stuck around. I think you'll be OK.   Hugs!

      @Nivegnal  My wife is still upset I hid it from her. What she can’t grasp is that I wasn’t ready to tell her as I had almost no answers at the time and was really feeling shame. We have had only very brief conversations since as we have had people staying with us almost non stop since the initial conversation.    I honestly don’t know that I would I have really done a whole lot different if I could have a do over. It was one of the most stressful things I have ever done in my life. It took everything I had to bring it into the light. I am still stressed about it both the situation with my wife and the fact I am not out to anyone else other than my therapist, my GP and my endo.    I am going to have a much more in-depth series of conversations with my wife this weekend, as we are finally going to have some alone time. We will see how it goes.    I wish you the best of luck in coming out to your spouse. Everyone is different and will handle the news in their own way. You may end up with a super supportive partner.    *hugs*   Sara
