CiTR's UBC 100 Doc Series - Obstacles and Outcomes

9:00am - 10:00am

Obstacles and Outcomes is about producer Vanessa Colantonio’s journey through the Canadian health care system as a transwoman of colour. Her story is set against a back drop of archival radio clips from Queer FM documenting the trans experience in the health care system. As smooth as it has been, Vanessa’s own transition is contrasted with the pitfalls and struggles of trans activists to get trans healthcare to where it is today. Her narration is interspersed with interview clips and live recordings aired on CiTR’s long-running LGBTQ issues and current affairs program ‘Queer FM’, recorded and hosted by Heather Kitching.
