CBC Radio series – ‘Pride and Prejudice’

A five-part radio series I conceived and produced for CBC Radio as part of a fellowship in July-August 2014.


1. The story of Tannaz: A transgender woman who was brutalized in her native Iran, and still struggles for acceptance here in Canada.

2. Sexual racism: LGBTQ people of colour don’t just face discrimination from their ethnic community – they are also often treated as less desirable by the white gay community.

3. Youth panel: A transgender male born in China, and a lesbian woman from a South Asian Hindu family talk about the cultural pressures they face and their experiences coming out to family.

4. A pyschologist’s perspective: Wallace Wong, a psychologist who works with LGBTQ people of colour, talks about the unique challenges this community faces, and the lack of resources to help them.

5. Introduction: I join the host of CBC’s The Early Edition to give an overview of some of the difficulties faced by LGBTQ people of colour – specifically immigrants.
