A ten minute documentary that jumps directly into an ongoing conversation among trans people about parenting. It is a beautiful snapshot of current issues, struggles and strengths of trans parents (and parents to be) in Canada today. This documentary was one of the results of a community-based research project conducted in 2010 by Jake Pyne and the LGBTQ Parenting Network. The project was designed to increase visibility, empowerment and community building amongst trans parenting communities in Toronto. Transforming FAMILY was officially launched at the 2012 Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film and Video Festival. The film was directed by Rémy Huberdeau in collaboration with the LGBTQ Parenting Network, and with support from: The Community One Foundation and The Centre for the Study of Gender, Social Inequities and Mental Health.
