Movie Notes: Being Me
We will meet 3 Australians and learn about their stories in the movie:
1. Isabelle: a young girl (11 years old). Isabelle was born into a male body, but as a toddler has always
identified as a girl
2. Paige Elliott Phoenix: Paige was born into a female body, but identifies as a female-to-male
transsexual ; a trans-man
3. Jamie: Jamie is an adolescent girl; she was born into a male body, but from an early age has always
identified as a girl. As discussed in the film, until recently children in Australia who required
puberty/hormone blocking drugs, needed court approval to access the drugs. Jamie’s family fought this
requirement in court.
**Note you do not need to know about “Gillick Competency”; a term that comes up in Jamie’s
story about dealing with the Australian court system.
A note about terms: the movie uses the terms transsexual and transgender interchangeably. As per
Jesse Invik’s guest lecture and our lecture today, we have defined them separately. The separate
definitions will stand. Which means in any test question from the movie, I will not use the term
transsexual or transgender. In test questions from outside of the movie (e.g. class & Jesse Invik’s
lecture), I will use the terms as defined/ discussed in Jesse Invik’s lecture and our class lecture.
