Series 1 Episode 4
First Broadcast: 10PM Tue 29 November 2011

Sarah, the most recently transitioned woman among the group, has to find a place to live. She moved from her home in Jersey to Swansea two months ago so that she could live full-time as a woman.

So far, being at the retreat has given her hope: she's got six friends to call on for support, she looks and feels better, and has taken the enormous step of coming out to her mum.

Now she wants to move again and make a new life in liberal, free-thinking Brighton. But can she find flat mates who will allow her to move in?

At the retreat, everyone's talking and thinking about relationships. Fifty-two-year old Karen is still recovering from genital surgery where her penis was inverted to create the vagina she's always wanted. Previously she's always preferred women, but now she's started to see a man, and that gets the group thinking about the difficulties of dating.

At 26, Donna's a beautiful transwoman, and single. Now she's determined to find the perfect man.

On the last day of the retreat, the group invite their parents and friends to the house to celebrate a remarkable summer. What have they learned from each other? They all make speeches in the emotional highpoint of the series.
