MEMBERS EVENT: Seashorse (film) screening & discussion I June 21 @ 6pm EST

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Free
Pull out the popcorn, it’s time for a movie night!
Join us on June 21st at 6:00pm EST, to watch the award-winning film, Seahorse: The Dad Who Gave Birth.  Following the film, you are invited to stay for a discussion on how to effectively support trans & non-binary parents, facilitated by Anna Penner, IE Lead for LGBTQ2S+ communities.
About the film: One trans man’s pioneering quest to fulfil an age-old desire: to start his own family. This is the story of the dad who gave birth.
Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family but for him this ordinary desire comes with unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man.
Deciding to carry his own baby took years of soul searching, but nothing could prepare him for the reality of pregnancy, as both a physical experience and one that challenges society’s fundamental understanding of gender, parenthood and family. He quickly realises that what to him feels pragmatic, to others feels deeply confusing and confronting; this was not part of his plan.
Against a backdrop of increasing hostility towards trans people the world over, Freddy is forced to confront his own naivety, mine unknown depths of courage and lean on every friend and family member who will stand by him.
Made with unprecedented access and collaboration over three years, the film follows Freddy from preparing to conceive right through to birth. It is an intimate, audacious and lyrical story for the cinema about conception, pregnancy, birth and what makes us who we are.
