Rae Spoon My Prairie Home

When director Chelsea McMullan first approached me with the idea of making a documentary about my life, I assumed it would remain mostly in the present tense. I envisioned a few interviews about what it's like to be a transgender singer. I'm proud to have stumbled my way into being in one of these films, and I hope that it can perhaps provide a window for those who are trapped in places that don't accept them, and who need to hear stories about making it out.
