Adam was born into a girl’s body in Egypt. But Adam always knew that he was really a boy. A boy, trapped in a girl’s body. In a deeply conservative society, Adam had no way to describe this feeling and if you are born in a country where being yourself can get you killed, exile is your only choice.
This is the remarkable, true story of a young trans man having to make that choice and begin his journey. From Egypt to Scotland, Adam’s flight crosses borders and genders to find a place for him to call home.
In a world first, this production features a world choir of trans individuals from across the globe, integrated into what is a remarkable multimedia production and a bold exploration of the experience of a young transgender person.
