“First, do no harm….”   

Without diagnostic clarity or mental health evaluations, their doctors quickly affirmed them as “transgender,” and mindlessly ushered them along the path of medical transition: so called “gender-affirming care” —the only treatment recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.  These young people were harmed —injected with powerful compounds and surgically altered; irrevocably changed and turned into lifelong pharmaceutical customers by the doctors they trusted.

Detransitioners Michelle, Laura, Cat, Joel and Abel tell the stories of their gender distress, transgender medicalization, and subsequent detransition, and are examined by twelve leading experts with decades of clinical practice treating gender-distressed patients: psychotherapists Lisa Marchiano, Sasha Ayad, Stella O’Malley, physician-scientist Lisa Littman, endocrinologist Dr. William Malone, MD; Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Stephanie Winn, sociologist Dr. Michael Biggs, pediatrician Dr. Julia Mason, NYT best-selling writer Lisa Selin Davis, and LGB activist & lifelong Liberal Democrat Joey Brite, among others. The 90-minute documentary cites 45 peer-reviewed medical and journalist articles.

5 patients,  12 experts,  45 academic medical studies…
A tidal wave of regret

“The movie is great!

It was done so wisely, smartly and in a way that’s extremely compelling.  It’s well worth your time.”
