Synopsis

With bracing honesty, filmmaker Quen WONG shares her journey as a transgender woman in Singapore—from her days as a teenage boy coming out to her uncommonly supportive family, to the present as a woman about to marry the love of her life. Locating herself within the local trans community, the documentary also weaves in interviews with different generations of trans women including ‘Anita’, a former legend of Bugis Street—a world-famous stomping ground for trans women in the 1950s to the ’80s—and Lune LOH, a trans youth activist.

In a society where trans issues are still poorly understood, let alone accepted, Some Women emerges as a pivotal voice—one that fully encapsulates the power of telling one’s story on their own terms.
