Becoming gives a first-person account of the journey that transgender South Africans have to go through in the process of changing their gender to the one they identify with.

Becoming... will follow the lives of four trans people – Gina Sokoyi, Ramazan Ngobese, Yaya Mavundla and Gugu Kumalo - as they face many obstacles and find ways to overcome them.

The show will, without judgment, delve deeper into the psyche of being a transgender person, as well as the barriers they need to overcome in order to live as their true selves.

The show will reveal all aspects of gender transformation – from taking a closer look at the psychological impact and gender dysmorphia, to hormonal changes and the emotional impact on each individual.

In the series premiere, emotions run high for members of the cast and crew on the set of Becoming... as they remember and later pay tribute to Gina Sokoyi, one of the four transgenders, who passed away in 2020 while the show was being shot.

A resident of Welkom in the Free State, Gina worked as a junior lecturer at the Central University of Technology in her town, and she was studying towards her Master's degree in Language Practice.
