Content warning: transphobia, violence against trans women, pornographic stereotypes
For today’s show we have an interview with second year McGill student, Samantha Nashman. Sam, who identifies as a trans woman, spoke with us about her research regarding media representations of trans women as a GSFS major. We spoke with Sam about fetishized representations within pornography, problematic cinematic narratives, Euphoria, Trisha Paytas, and ways in which media outlets and mediums can better represent trans women. We want to inform viewers of a content warning, as we will be discussing transphobia, fetishization of trans women in the porn industry, and violence against trans women.
