About the project
Something for Cate (working title) tells the story of the exquisitely turbulent life of Australian national treasure – Catherine McGregor, 2016 Queensland Australian of the Year, and the world’s highest ranking transgender military officer. Her extraordinary career has taken her from rabble-rousing political operative in government’s highest circles to cricket writer of national acclaim to decorated soldier, who was awarded an Order of Australia for exceptional service to the Australian Army in 2012. An expert in combat, Catherine has also fought her own private battle. At the age of 56 she faced a turning point: suicide or transitioning as a woman.
