Summary

Title from container.

Based on the book "Girl boy girl - how I became JT Leroy" by Savannah Knoop.

DVD release of the 2019 motion picture.

Based on Savannah Knoop's memoir Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT Leroy, this true story goes beyond the headlines to tell the story of the most compelling literary hoax of recent times. Laura Albert writes as her "avatar," a disenfranchised young queer man named JT LeRoy. When her debut novel becomes a best-seller and JT becomes the darling of the literary world, she comes up with a unique solution to preserve her anonymity but give life to her nom-de-plume. Enter her boyfriend's androgynous fun-loving sister Savannah Knoop, who connects with Laura's punk, feminist, ousider universe and agrees to be JT in the public eye. Together, they embark on a wild ride of double lives, infiltrating the Hollywood and literary elite, only to discover who they are while pretending to be someone else.
