»It’s important that someone has found himself, that he has found out who he is and that he can live the way he wants to. Nothing else really matters. He’s a man.«
Chris

Chris, Jonas, Henrik and Malte give us an insight into their lives as men. They tell us about their journeys to becoming a man, because all of them were born as women. What connects them is their common work in the association TransMann e.V., which pursues the goal of supporting transmen on their journey and raising public awareness for transsexuality.
