Below is the transcription of the video for deaf/hearing impaired folks:
There’s very little representation of trans and queer stories and lives within the global yoga community. This film is a chance for us to change that. We’re queering the actual yoga community as it is. Stretching it and smearing it and making room for that community to expand and making room for ourselves within that community. It’s so important for us to make this film.
It’s a feature length project that's currently in production. At this point we've done five interviews and we still have at least four more to do. We are inviting you to be a part of this project by supporting the completion of production. The film, Queering Yoga has a potential to actually change the global yoga community to make that community a space where trans and queer people see themselves represented. It’s a huge opportunity for lots of people who don’t feel comfortable to practice yoga.
It’s extremely important for queer/trans people to create projects of queer/trans experiences and lives first hand. We need to raise $40,000 to complete production. We cannot get there without your support. All of your contributions go towards paying queer and/or trans film professionals. We’re grateful to you our community and allies for your contributions of any amount. There’s all kinds of rewards that we have to give people who invest in the project. Wait! What’s that? Oh, you don’t have any money? Okay, don’t worry you can still invest in the project. All you have to do is share it! I appreciate you and I appreciate your support. Thank you.
