Being True to Yourself with Frit Tam

Ep.34 06/05/2021

“There is no one more inspiring than when you meet someone and they just own who they are”

Frit Tam is a British- born, Chinese, transgender filmmaker. An adventurer: a hiker, climber, stand up paddleboarder, skier, and cyclist and so much more.

Frit is the founder of Passion Fruit Pictures, a place within the film industry to represent the underrepresented.

As a child frit was super sporty, but adventure and the outdoors were never really explored. That was until Frit’s mid 20’s when a friend asked Frit on an adventure that would open up a whole new way of life.

Frit discusses for the first time in public about his identity as being transgender and the years of discovery to get to the point to be comfortable to tell others about such a journey.

Frit’s next adventure is doing Glide for Pride, a 2-month long rollerblading challenge throughout the UK. Frit wants to to visit LGBTQ+ historical places, to show that no matter where you live, there will always be someone who resonates with your story. You just have to remember you are not alone.

Frit has only recently begun roller blading and therefore to rollerblade over 2,000km throughout the UK is a huge challenge.

Get ready for a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and everything in-between!
