  • After a long period in life identifying as a Butch Lesbian Cuthand considers transitioning to male. The experience involves a six month period of her life during which she goes by name Sarain, which she would have been called had she been born a boy. They ask to be called by male pronouns. Complicated by mental health crises, Cuthand found themselves in a mental health group home for women, having to hide their gender dysphoria. After a considerable amount of thought and discussion, Cuthand changes her mind and decides to remain a Butch Lesbian. Shot partially in Hamburg Germany, riding back and forth on the UBahn is a metaphor for her eventual acceptance of fluctuating between masculine and feminine gender.
