Pelangi Pride Centre presents (10th May 2008) -
"Trembling before God" and "Rene's Story".

1) Trembling before God (84mins)

2) Rene's Story (77mins)
Rene, 31, a female-to-male gender reassignment candidate took hormones
for years and "passed" as a man for all of his adult life. Married to
his high-school sweetheart, Wona, a heterosexual woman, for 12 years,
no one would guess Rene was biologically a woman. Living under a veil
of secrecy and lies, Rene and Wona's lives seemed fine until someone
"outted" the couple at their beloved church and everything they knew
was destroyed. The public revelation of Rene's secret starts to
unravel his marriage to Wona. Through all of it, Rene continues to
hold on to his lifelong obsession to become a biological male and goes
on a cross-country search to find the best transgender surgeon, only
to discover that the current surgery options are flawed. At the last
minute, Rene finds a surgeon who has created an experimental
procedure, which will be seen in THE OPPOSITE SEX for the first time.
