Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family but for him this ordinary desire comes with unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man. Deciding to carry his own baby took years of soul searching, but nothing could prepare him for the reality of pregnancy, as both a physical experience and one that challenges society's fundamental understanding of gender, parenthood and family. One trans man's pioneering quest to fulfil an age-old desire: this is the story of the dad who gave birth.
We are delighted to welcome BIFA-winner and Broadway-based director Jeanie Finlay for a post-screening Q&A along with Freddy McConnell.
