The Secret (and Not So Secret) Life of Theresa Sparks


Theresa Sparks has lived more than one life. Born a guy’s guy, a man’s man, cowboy boots, motorcycles, a stint in the army, married his childhood sweetheart, kids, big successful business. But the truth was more complicated than that. In Fugitive Waves, Episode 21, one of San Francisco’s most respected and outspoken transgender activists tells her truth, that she was walking around in the wrong suit for 50 something years. “Transparent” years before the series saw the light of day.

Produced by The Kitchen Sisters with Nathaniel Johnson and Nathan Dalton.
