EP 3 - Gender and Grief w/ Rob Sidwell

Jun 16, 2020, 05:27 PM
Izzy speaks to her mother Sue about what it was like to be in a same-sex relationship with her mother Kate when she was dying, and how society saw her grief. Producer Bridey reflects on her own queerness and how Sue's story affects her as a queer woman.

Izzy looks at the relationship between gender and grief, and what society assumes from gender roles when both women and men are grieving. Jack and Ben from The New Normal charity talk about their relationship to grief as a man losing their father. Izzy also speaks to Rob Sidwell, trustee of The Ted Senior Foundation, about how he remembers his friend Ted and how he has expressed his grief creatively through being part of a charitable foundation.
