My Child

Can Candan / 2013 / Turkey / 82'

Fri 21 June / 18:00 / LSE



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.


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, LSE)


Presented in collaboration with the LSE’s Centre for the Study of Human Rights
