The Wide Open, curated by Lacie Kanerahtahsóhon Burning, continues from media art in community centres throughout Vancouver through their Trans, Gender Diverse, and Two-Spirit Inclusion team to the big screen. This media project puts LGBTQ2S+ narratives fearlessly out in the open with a focus on intersectionality.
