Mongrel (short film, 2008)

Mongrel is a short film I made after a terrible event utterly changed the course of my life and lowered me into a decade of depression and darkness. To cope, I began taking drugs for the first time and drinking a lot.

I felt at the time that doing so would help “kill” the girl in me.

That fat lump of a dude was me, circa 2008. He’s the only thing that’s dead these days. I’ve lost nearly half my body weight from those days and am happy in a way I didn’t realize was possible.

After years of hiding it in shame, this film was finally released to celebrate International Day of Transgender Visibility, 2018.
