A couple since they were teenagers, Darcy and Rosa have been together for 13 years, and currently live in Brighton. They both share a love of cooking, health and nutrition – and Darcy says that they’re both either eating food, planning food, or talking about food. For Darcy, who hasn’t seen his family in a few years because of his transition, the contrast between partner support and family support couldn’t be any bigger.
The film is part of the Patchwork Stories series that looks at the lives of transgender people of all ages and backgrounds around the UK. The series was commissioned by All About Trans and produced by Lucky Tooth Films in collaboration with Channel 4.
Fox Fisher and Lewis Hancox of Lucky Tooth have been making films together since meeting on the Channel 4 series My Transsexual Summer in 2011. To hear them talking about the making of the Patchwork series and see clips, click here.
Other films in the series introduce models, soldiers, artists, musicians, activists and psychics, who just happen to be trans – as well as their friends, partners and families.
In 2015, Channel 4 host a selection of the short films on ‘Shorts’, available to watch on All4 at www.all4.com. Shorts are Channel 4’s original short form videos on 4oD.
