Comments about the movie Funny Kinda Guy:

"FUNNY KINDA GUY is not a likely title for a documentary about a transgendered singer-songwriter who, while gaining his true identity as a man, must sacrifice his voice to hormone treatment. Yet Scotland's Simon de Voil is so charismatic and good-natured, the title quickly grabs hold and never lets go." San Francisco International Film Festival

"A strong sense of compassion towards a clever and witty guy struggling to come to terms with his own masculinity...FUNNY KINDA GUY scores by simply telling it straight." Isla Leaver-Yap, THE LIST


Comments from the public:

"I first watched your video in 2007 to better understand genders who are trapped in the body of the opposite sex. A young person in Queensland has recently decided to identify with his true sexuality as a boy. He is much more confident in himself since his decision. I have recommended your DVD to him and hope it will help. Great to see you are pursuing your singing career. "  Jd Mandy - Western Australia
