Societies have always been deeply concerned with the duality of genders, recognizing only the classifications of "man" and "woman." They rely on biological sex as the primary factor to determine a person's gender identity, automatically assigning the pronoun "he" to individuals assigned male at birth and "she" to individuals assigned female at birth. However, it is possible that these pronouns assigned at birth do not align with a person's true gender identity or expression.
Transitioning involves moving from one place to another in order to reach a destination that suits and resonates with one's true self. The transition varies from person to person: some seek to embrace a different gender than the one assigned at birth, while others reject gender binary altogether and explore new forms and pronouns that reflect and affirm their diverse reality.
The fifth episode of the "Borjouliya" series explores gender transition. Through heartfelt conversations with our guests, we delve into their experiences of gender transition and explore key aspects such as the role of the body and its relationship with gender identity, the lived experiences of transgender people in public spaces, and transitioning beyond gender binary.
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.
