The Old-fashioned Way

Monday, 18 May

When Freddy started his transition seven years ago, his doctor told him he’d never be able to have his own child. But, he was wrong. Right now, many trans and nonbinary people are discovering the truth about their fertility and rethinking their family plans. Freddy talks to his queer super hero, Jacob, about their journeys to parenthood, the challenges of pregnancy, and the joys of having a kid. ---- The story of how Freddy became a dad is also told in the documentary Seahorse, directed by Jeanie Finlay, produced by the BBC and Grain Media, in association with Glimmer Films and The Guardian. www.seahorsefilm.com If you've been affected by any of the issues discussed please go to BBC Action Line where you can find resources available: https://www.bbc.co.uk/actionline BBC Action Line – LGBT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1nYWPTdMtKStFL2ztx1SV11/information-and-support-lgbt-issues Presented by Freddy McConnell Produced by Dasha Lisitsina Assistant Producer: Arlie Adlington Executive Producer: Russell Finch Sound Design: Phoebe Wang A Somethin’ Else Production for BBC Sounds
