Directed by Academy Award Winner Lee Grant, "What Sex Am I?" follows a group of Transgender individuals struggling to make their way in every strata of 1980s America. From finding employment to finding acceptance, the first question the world forces them to ask is always, "What Sex Am I?" The acclaimed HBO Documentary returns from Grant's archives for its 30th anniversary to a world at once much evolved, and still very much the same as the United States of its first run.

A Sensitive Treatment of a Sensitive Subject
Lee Grant once again proves her worth as actress, producer and director in a career that stretches back 40 years in this very sensitive look at an issue many people refuse to even acknowledge, transgenderism.
Through interviews with transgendered people... and yes, these are people, not 'things' or 'its'... and following one woman through her life's experiences leading up to sexual reassignment surgery, Grant treats this subject with care, concern and sensitivity lacking in many other productions.
For those people who are transgendered, this is an excellent movie about you, as real people. For those who are curious, it is a learning tool. For those who care about other human beings, it is a must-see, not unlike certain recommended readings from high school and college.
