LGBT film "Albatross" -- Reproductive Justice in Texas
We speak with Myles Yaksich, writer/director of the film "Albatross". A dark, dramatic thriller, "Albatross" examines the concept of self (identity, ethnicity and sexual-orientation) in the context of society, while illustrating the compromises individuals are willing to make to feel as though they belong. Two seemingly separate narratives, spanning some 30 years converge at a dinner party between two newly introduced couples in 1959 New England, revealing that the attendees know much more about one another than they first thought.
GUEST: Myles Yaksich
Then we speak with Sam Romero about the state of reproductive justice in Texas. We talk her healthcare experience and what can be done going forward. We discuss her work with the West Fund and Abortion Funds. The National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.
