``The Makeover`` is a distinctly traditional love story set in a decidedly non-traditional milieu of shifting gender. Tom is an aging conservative policy wonk who is learning to embrace his feminine, alter ego persona, Giselle. Both Tom and Giselle are in relationship with cisgender Elizabeth Taylor; once a nuclear power instructor with the US Navy turned makeover artist for the trans community. This unlikely trio finds the courage to love and accept one another for who they truly are ... as a man, a woman, and sometimes both.

“Meeting Beth, falling in love with Beth and having her as a partner made the difference between things being forbidden,
oppressed and anxiety producing to joy producing.”
It’s actually wonderful to be able to do the things I like to do
...in whatever mode I feel like doing them.
