Transgender Athletes Train To Compete In 'Man Made'

May 9, 2018

The world’s only transgender bodybuilding competition is held every fall in Atlanta. It's called Trans Fit Con.

 

"Man Made," a new documentary, follows the lives of four transgender men who trained to compete at Trans Fit Con in 2016. The film won the Documentary Feature Jury Award at last month's Atlanta Film Festival.

 

 


Director and writer T. Cooper joined us in the studio to talk about the film. We also spoke with Rese Weaver, one of the power lifters featured in the documentary, about his life as a transgender man and the struggles he and his fellow athletes have faced.
