Descriptions Becoming Colleen
Starting her life as Colin, a husband, father, policeman, film-projectionist and self-declared shoe fetishist, Colleen and her wife Heather’s love transcended their gender roles. But what are the medical complications that can arise from transitioning later in life? Ian Thomson’s Becoming Colleen examines the role of gender, about society’s own transition to understanding, and a caring community that ultimately offers support for an individual to express themselves, to find comfortability in their own skin.
A story of transitioning at 82, a love between two people that goes beyond gender, and the joy of finding the perfect pair of shoes.
