Rémy directed Transgender Parents for CBC’s Documentary Channel, which has played in festivals and universities internationally. Transgender Parents reveals the gifts that trans people bring to parenting because of, not in spite of, their gender. It’s an intimate and tender look at the art of parenting, some of the hardest relational work in life. The film has become a respected and popular teaching tool for professionals in the health industry and midwife associations. Listen to Rémy's interview about the film on CBC’s Q.
