Allison Relaxes with Outdoor Photography

Allison Relaxes with Outdoor Photography

Allison loves outdoor photography. For her eye makeup, we used MAC‘s on-trend palette called “Art Library: Flame-Boyant” and the lipstick color “Brick-o-La.” For photography, I used photo strobes and colored gels to create the purple backdrop of bamboo and the richly-hued blue sky.

I’m located in Takoma Park, Maryland inside the I-495 beltway adjacent to Washington, DC. Takoma Park prides itself on being LGBT-friendly and inclusive.

A Trans Love Story—Sneak Preview of “The Makeover”

A Trans Love Story—Sneak Preview of “The Makeover”
Beth and Giselle kiss

Giselle and I would LOVE for you to join us for a cocktail party, film screening, discussion, and fundraiser for our filmmakers and dear friends, Jane Pittman and Sarah Park. Over the past three years, Jane and Sarah have documented how Giselle and I have evolved — “been transformed,” so to speak — and grown together. The result, entitled “The Makeover,” is all but complete and ready for the upcoming film festival circuit. After the screening, Jane, Sarah, Giselle, and I will talk about the making of the film. Of course, we will provide plenty of delicious wine and some finger foods since this is a cocktail party after all. 🙂

We’re very proud of the film, not just because it captures our experience but because we think our love may resonate with many across our community, including our families and friends. We look forward to sharing our story with you, and hope you’ll help Jane and Sarah put the finishing touches on a wonderful documentary.

Event link on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/154018035254035/

RSVP at either event link or by email at elizabeth.taylor.makeover@gmail.com

• Film Synopsis

Beth and Tom head to dinner gala

Beth and Tom head to a dinner gala.

“The Makeover” is a distinctly traditional love story set in a decidedly non-traditional milieu of BDSM and shifting gender. Tom is an aging conservative policy wonk, in private known as Giselle. He meets Elizabeth Taylor, once a nuclear power instructor with the US Navy but now a photographer and make-up artist who sees hundreds of trans clients per year. Together this unlikely couple transform one another into what they most want to be.

• Donation Options

Jane and Sarah will be accepting cash donations, checks (perfect if you’d like a tax-deductible gift to charity), and GoFundMe for credit cards. They will use the funds to complete the film music scoring, final editing, and film marketing and distribution. Donate Anytime at GoFundMe

We love our lives! To being fabulous, everyone!

Elizabeth Taylor & Giselle Frances Donnelly
