My Child

  • Date and time: Friday 21 June 2013, 6pm - 8pm
  • Speakers: Can Candan, Metehan Ozkan
  • Chair: Professor Chetan Bhatt

What happens when your child comes out to you? My Child is about a very courageous and inspiring group of people in Turkey, who are parents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals. Each story is an intimate journey of transformation, as they redefine what it means to be parents, family, and activists in a conservative, homophobic, and transphobic society.

This screening will be followed by panel discussion with Can Candan (Director) and Metehan Ozkan (Co-Producer, LISTAG activist), chaired by Professor Chetan Bhatt, Director of the Centre for the Study of Human Rights at  LSE.
