Mason broke his neck after diving into a pool at 18. In the documentary Young and Aumangea, we see him five years after his accident, and follow his journey as a young Māori transgender man waiting for breast removal surgery.

Made by Diva Productions with support from NZ on Air.

This is the second episode of the TVNZ on Demand series Young And. The documentaries look at what it’s really like to be in your 20s in Aotearoa. From young women being unable to orgasm to what it means to sit on the paepae as young Māori men, we take an honest look at issues around sexuality, culture, gender and social identity.
