So, what might have happened if Bill C-279 — the gender identity/trans right bill in Canada — had been passed by the Senate with the controversial amendment introduced by Conservative senator Don Plett? What happens if a similar bill with a similar amendment were to become law after the next federal election?
A team of filmmakers in British Columbia will be answering these questions and more in a short film called Journey to She.
The project is currently in the fundraising stage, with a mere $5,000 being sought through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. As of this writing (July 30), they had raised $1,100.
Victoria, B.C., activist Brae Carnes is part of this project. You may remember that Brae started the “Plett put me here” protest campaign against Don Plett’s so-called Bill C-279 “bathroom amendment” in Canada, which got a ton of publicity in mainstream media — including my Gazette blog — and helped inspire the “We just need to pee” campaign against “bathroom bills” in the United States.
The film will look at the situation in both countries.
