Synopsis: Still Point Turning

Date posted: 18 Sep 2017Author: STC Production: Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story

Catherine McGregor and Heather Mitchell

Still Point Turning is an account of the fascinating life of Catherine McGregor, from childhood through to the present day, told through her own words.

It is a story of a figure who moves easily between the different worlds of the military, politics and cricket. It's a life of extremes: from the depths of alcoholism, to recovery; from the loss of her parents to the discovery of herself; from serving in East Timor to winning Queenslander of the year.  

It also explores the journey she is on in transitioning as a woman: the experience of gender dysphoria, the reactions of her friends and colleagues, the public scrutiny, the important connections she has made. And the life-affirming reality of expressing herself as she truly is.
