Meet Ted Campbell
For several years now, Marlo Bernier has been a very good friend of mine. Also, a colleague. We've collaborated on many projects, seek each others' advice in our writing, etc. A few years back, we were working on a short film together. At lunch during a tech scout, she revealed to me that she was transitioning. I stared blankly at her... "Huh?" You see up until that moment (and for the majority of her life) I knew her as Mark. She is transsexual. Born physically male. But in her heart, mind and soul... female. She took the very brave and necessary step to change her physical gender to match her gender identity.
Over the years, the stories of her journey have been funny, heartbreaking and inspiring. I've never met a braver person whose use of humor in the face of obvious opposition has become a weapon of survival. I have more than once felt that these stories need to be told. Finally, we have decided that these stories will be told.
