Gender Reveal

Mar 17, 2020

Tuck speaks with Bangladeshi Muslim artist and organizer (and Gender Reveal grant winner) Farhat Rahman (they/he). Topics include:

  • Bangladeshi gender roles and trans identities
  • Creating spaces for films about trans, gender nonconforming, and intersex POC
  • The tokenization of trans voices by cis folks for clout
  • Should we be hopeful for/jealous of trans youth?

CW: suicide (33-35)

This Week in Gender: Chelsea Manning is out of prison and her fines have been paid. (CW: suicide in this article as well.)

Find Farhat on Instagram @thirdworldtrans and follow their film festival projects at @movinggendersnyc.
