CN: reclamation of transphobic language.
The first in a series of short documentaries by Sandra Alland about queer and trans D/deaf and disabled artists in Scotland. Writer and photographer Nathan Gale discusses the intersection of their queer, trans and crip identities. They also give the low-down on 'inspiration porn': using disabled people or performers to make non-disabled audiences feel good about themselves. Sandra's interview is intercut with Nathan's visual art and live performances.
“I'm Not Your Inspiration 1” premiered at MacRobert Stirling, and has screened at local and international festivals including Entzaubert (Berlin) and Together! (London). It was an official selection for Fringe! Festival 2013 (London). Most recently it featured at Seattle Transgender Film Festival, 2017.
