I’m so excited to welcome T Cooper back to the podcast this week to discuss his award winning documentary film, Man Made, which traces the lives of four transgender men as they prepare to step on the stage at the only trans bodybuilding competition in the world. T and I discuss his motivation toward making the film and the path that led him from author to director, and his experience making his first feature length film.
T Cooper is the author of seven novels, including the best-selling The Beaufort Diaries and Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry Blondes, as well as co-author (with Allison Glock-Cooper) of the recent four-part young adult novel series entitled Changers. Cooper’s most recent solo book is the non-fiction Real Man Adventures. His television writing credits include: Netflix’s The Get Down and BBC America’s Copper, and he is currently Writer and Consulting Producer on The Blacklist (NBC).
