The aesthetics of late 1960′s and early 1970′s melodramas, road trip films, and films incorporating dance and movement, serve as the backdrop for the story of a transgender man’s initial visit to meet his girlfriend’s parents in the first episode of the series Traverse City.

The family, seemingly progressive and supportive of same sex relationships, has to navigate a whole new paradigm when their lesbian daughter surprises them with a male partner. Traverse City is a humorous series that grapples with the emergence of distinct transgender identities within queer communities, the disruption of homonormativity as well as the complexities of love and acceptance within families of all contexts whether blood or chosen.
