A personal, visual essay about gender transition – focusing on the social context and implications and exploring how the world is different living as female compared to being perceived as male.

Jack tells his story by using and reframing gender focused tropes and imagery from popular culture, mythology, history and art.

Director’s Vision for ‘Everyman’

I had the idea for Everyman many years ago when I started living as Jack and I noticed that I was getting treated differently. I was really aware that I was now experiencing the world from a different viewpoint. Most people are aware that the world is different for men and women but will only ever experience it from one side so I wanted to share what I was seeing. I would bring it up regularly with people as it was often on the forefront of my mind. It was actually a really good way to talk about what it means to be trans and what I was going through in a way that was relatable to people who aren’t trans. That made me realise the story would have the potential to make a great film.
