Trans Parenting at GFT, Glasgow

May 14, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Free – £10

Trans Parenting is a shorts programme that focuses on trans and non-binary experiences around family; raising families, forming families, and nurturing families.

Flash Flood (2017, Dir. Al Mackay) is a short animation. Deep within a rotoscoped dream, three transgender people confront a cataclysmic flood. Featuring stories from Jessie Anderson, Helen Poon and Al Mackay.

Transgender Parents (2013, Dir. Rémy Huberdeau) reveals the gifts trans people bring to parenting because of, and not in spite of, their gender. It’s an intimate and tender look at the art of parenting, some of the hardest relational work in this life.

M(OTHER)HOOD (2022, Dir. Bea Goddard) is a short documentary that shows an unfiltered but fragmentary perspective of Jack López – a trans parent of four children, using the children’s art, cinematography, and words to gain privileged access to their domestic sphere.

Curated by Indigo Korres.

These events were originally scheduled to take place at CCA, Glasgow. We decided to postpone our Trans-Generational Tour events in Glasgow after three weeks of  demonstrations at Saramago (the independent bar & restaurant at CCA), with no sign of a resolution. SQIFF stands in solidarity with the workers and supports them and Clydeside IWW in their actions against Saramago.
