About Orlando: My Political Biography

From acclaimed writer and activist Paul B. Preciado, Orlando: My Political Biography is a bold and joyous celebration of trans identity, told through the lens of Virginia Woolf’s iconic novel.

Woolf’s Orlando follows the centuries-spanning life of a young nobleman who awakens to find that they a woman. Almost a century after its publication, Preciado claims that fiction has become reality and Orlando’s story lies at the root of all contemporary trans and non-binary life. Told through a myriad of trans and non-binary voices living today – our new ‘Orlandos’ – this documentary offers a dazzling example of how life, poetry and gender can meet in search for truth.
