The story behind the man behind the beard
‘Transmansplaining’ is an original one-man stage show based on the experiences of Ben, a self-described “short, balding, bearded, gay, trans man”. Using humour, storytelling, video diaries, and intimate disclosures, he reveals his unique perspective on life as a transgender man. Drawing on his memoir ‘A Cut Closer to Whole’ and eighteen years living as a man, Transmansplaining chronicles Ben’s early inklings of being different, the realisation of his sexuality and gender dysphoria, and the poignant and often humorous observations about being AFAB (assigned female at birth) and life pre- and post-transition.
Combining Ben's skills as a natural raconteur and comic with the passion of a social justice activist, Transmansplaining reveals the story behind the man behind the beard.
