A deep and intimate portrait of a new generation of transmasculine individuals as they undergo gender transitions.

Award-winning sociologist Arlene Stein takes us into the lives of four strangers who find themselves together in a sun-drenched surgeon's office, having traveled to Florida from across the United States in order to masculinize their chests. Ben, Lucas, Parker, Nadia and their friends and family, hope that the surgery, along with hormone treatments, will make them more comfortable in their bodies and more masculine in appearance. 
            Transgender men comprise a large, growing proportion of the trans population, yet they remain largely invisible. Stein's powerful, timely and eye-opening account—drawn from dozens of interviews with transgender people, along with medical and psychological experts, as well as activists—reveals how a younger generation of trans men are prying open our assumptions about gender. At a time of conservative resurgence, they do so despite great personal costs.
            Documenting the ways that individuals reshape their bodies and their lives, Unbound uniquely sheds light onto our changing understanding of what it means to be male and female in America. Download and start listening now!
