In the sixth episode of the third season of 'Borjouliya,' we delve further into the exploration of transgender identity. We are thrilled to be joined by Moncef Zahrouni, the director of the 'TranstyX' project, as we engage in a conversation about the multifaceted experience of gender transition. From personal to societal perspectives, we explore the profound philosophical and social aspects of this journey.

"TranstyX" is a Tunisian queer art project, launched in 2018 by the local NGO Zanoobya. This project offers a distinct artistivist approach that aims to bring greater visibility to the struggle of the local LGBTQIA+ community, with a focus on transgender individuals.

Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab.
Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert.
Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience.
Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process.
In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity.
These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand.
Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
