About the film:
A Womb of Their Own introduces a charismatic, funny, thoughtful group of masculine-of-center people who experience pregnancy. Each individual and couple navigates gender expectations, even from the LGBT community, that don’t fit their experience of themselves. Follow their stories as they establish and celebrate their own unique gender, develop their definition of family, grow a baby in their bodies, and birth, chestfeed and parent their children.

About the director, Cyn Lubow:
As a filmmaker and birth parent whose gender defies categories, Cyn wanted to make A Womb of Their Own so that more people could embrace their uniqueness, and not feel pressure to perform a gender to fit cultural expectations.
A Womb of Their Own took three years to make and is being requested all over the world. The trailer alone has been seen in over 125 countries, and the film has screened at numerous film festivals, several universities as well as medical and community forums.
About our Panel Participants (more to come!):
Rae Darrow is a non-binary AFAB transmasculine person whose pronouns are they/them. They grew up on a farm in California in a one stop light town and went to college at San Francisco State. Rae had the unique experience of being pregnant at the same time as their spouse and they now are the proud Dada of almost five year old wonderkids.
