Since the recording of this story, Blodge (yes it’s a nic name) has transitioned and is now Chase, a “testosterone-based” individual. In this story, recorded in 2013, he tells an entertaining tale about his experience with gender expressions and stereotypes both in the town where he grew up in southern Ontario and in communities in the Yukon Territory. An updated story was recorded at the Moving Trans History Forward conference in 2016, and once it is available will be linked here.
Blodge’s story video is the first of a series of videos from Whitehorse, YT that were facilitated by the Yukon Queer Film Alliance with the generous support of Arts Fund Yukon. YQFA is responsible for OUT North, the first queer film festival north of 60. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Yukon-Queer-Film-Alliance/369436306474933?fref=ts
