Title: Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story
Author: Jackman, Priscilla
Price: $23.95

"And I arrived at the same point every trans person does. If I am to live on, it would be as the person I felt myself to be, or I would die." — CATHERINE MCGREGOR


From the age of eight, Catherine McGregor knew she was a woman. But first she would have to live as a man. She played many parts: son, brother, husband, athlete, soldier, speech writer. She worked in professions full of machismo, inside institutions built by men.

Everyday was a challenge, and every challenge took its toll. In 2012, aged 56, McGregor faced a turning point: end her life, or transition as a woman.

Drawn Directly from countless hours of interviews with McGregor, Still Point Turning tells her story in her own words. It reveals a woman of fierce intellect, passion, incisive humour and profound feeling. It celebrates her tenacity without shying away from her faults. It is the true story of her true self.

Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story was first produced by Sydney Theatre Company premiering at Wharf1 Theatre on 26 April 2018. This production was originally developed through Sydney Theatre Company's Rough Draft Program.
