New Documentary Project: Experiences of Trans, Non-Binary & Gender Non-Conforming Youth
This documentary will explore the experiences, stories, ideas, thoughts and lives of youth existing in what has been called "the 21st century gender revolution."
Unique opportunity for youth ages 15-25 to share their personal experiences and thoughts related to gender identity.
We are looking for local transgender, non-binary, two-spirited and gender non-conforming youth ages 15-25 who would be interested in being interviewed about their gender experience and what gender means to them.
We are looking to ensure this documentary includes perspectives from people of color, those with disabilities, and those from low-income families/homes.
To get started reach out via email, we'll send a link to brief questionnaire and schedule an interview which are expected to take place in late January into February.
Offer an honest and authentic portrayal of youth with varying identities and expressions in contemporary society, to explore and showcase the individuality, diversity, and variation of gender that exists in Canada. - Creator, Noah Lorch
Focus of Documentary
