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:
Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at the 2005 Melbourne Queer Film Festival.
"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
