Talk and booksigning on Wednesday, September 15 at 7pm
with the author and the editor Tommaso Speretta

Even today, services to proceed with gender confirmation surgery in Oslo, Norway, remain slow, convoluted and discriminatory. Applicants are forced to endure endless waiting lists for assessment and treatment, which in most cases is still denied. A 2017 report indicates that the country’s only government-funded clinic providing the necessary treatment, in Oslo, accepts about a quarter of annual applications.

In 2015, Hedda began her gender affirmation journey in Norway, traveling between Oslo, Buenos Aires and Bangkok to undergo surgery and vaginoplasty.

Serck-Hanssen and Hedda worked together to construct a complex portrait of both the physical and psychological changes involved in transition. The result is a collaborative story that acknowledges the pain – the bandages, the bruises, the sterile hospital environment – but also sensitively uncovers the beauty and strength in this crucial moment in Hedda’s life.
