Watch The Brandon Teena Story - Alternative Versions.
Although we do get to hear the voice of Brandon Teena because of her
taped interview with the police, The Brandon Teena Story is essentially
the plot of Boys Don't Cry without the central protagonist. Hilary
Swank filled the void that Brandon's absence created with her Academy
Award winning performance. What we have here is a documentary of the
events leading up to his murder and what happened to his killers.
When dealing with a transgender individual to properly tell the story
we have to go back to the cradle to those very first questioning that
something is not right with the body I'm in. So it was with Tina
Brandon born in Nebraska and raised in a time where she would have had
limited access to literature about being transgender. She also was
raised in a redneck culture and her male role models were the redneck
boys she grew up with. This was to her what it meant to be a man.
Before he was murdered at the end of 1993, Tina Brandon reversed her
name and started living as Brandon Teena in a nearby town where no one
knew him from a previous identity as a woman. As a man Brandon did
pretty good with the woman by the accounts in the film and that aroused
suspicion that eventually led to tragedy.
There were two crimes involving Brandon Teena. The first was a brutal
rape when her physical privacy was violated on Christmas Eve and then
her murder along with two other people to silence them as witnesses
after Brandon Teena brought the complaint of rape on New Year's Eve.
Two things I guarantee you will disturb you for all time to come. The
first was the total lack of remorse by Brandon's killers, John Lotter
and Tom Nissen. They still truly believe that in their heart of hearts
they were somehow defending the barriers of male sexuality from
unwanted invasion. Secondly it's the total lack of compassion and
understanding of transgender issues by the sheriff's department when
you hear the sheriff questioning Brandon about the rape. Both these
things sad to say aren't a new story for me. I worked 23 years for NYS
Crime Victims Board and even today the approach some police take
regarding gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender crime victims is appalling.
It's far worse where I live now in Buffalo than in New York City where
I'm originally from. That it's not a new a revelatory story for me is
another frightening thing.
To get the facts as Joe Friday used to say on Dragnet, I suggest you
watch the Brandon Teena Story documentary. To flesh out who was Brandon
Teena than don't miss Hilary Swank's performance in Boys Don't Cry.
This review is dedicated to all the Transgender support groups out
there in the world, especially to the Buffalo Belles and Spectrum in my
area. They provide an incalculable service to those transgender folks
at various stages of their journey. Due to the insurance regulations
most will die in the bodies they feel wrongly trapped in. Hopefully
that will change and the Brandon Teenas don't have to stay Tina Brandon
if that's not who they were meant to be.
