A Self-Made Man

"At a crucial turning point, Tony Ferraiolo’s inner voice said, “Create yourself.” This credo saved his life and continues to save many others." - Frameline37

"Even as he struggles to come to terms with the complexities of his own life as transgender person, he labors to offer safety and assurance to families immersed in an often frightening transition. A Self-Made Man navigates the issues Tony and his charges face with a tone both candid and compassionate—much like it’s protagonist himself." - Margaret Mead Film Festival
