    'Man Made' views the transgender experience through a bodybuilding lens

    (CNN)"Man Made" looks at the transgender experience through what seems like a highly specific lens: The only bodybuilding competition for transgender participants. But focusing on competitors at different stages, facing a variety of issues, offers a complex, nuanced view, in a way that does a lot of heavy lifting for a small film.

    Setting these various coming-out journeys against this backdrop provides a means of considering traditional images of masculinity, and in the case of bodybuilding, the enormous amounts of hard work that goes into achieving them.
    The exposed nature of the sport also serves as a metaphor for the way these men, assigned and raised female, bare themselves emotionally. The release is timed to Transgender Awareness Week.
    Director T Cooper spent a long time documenting his subjects, following them as they prepare for the competition. Through their stories, the conversation widens to include not only the four competitors but those around them.

    Woah, this is great news and a sign that society sees transgender as humans with dignity and have the right to be respected on what they decide they will do to their own body. Hopefully, this program will continue because it gives hope for the transgender to showcase their beautiful ideal body.
