As part of British Film Institute’s ‘NHS Untold Stories’ inniative 2023, Dr. XYZ is a community-made trans+ healthcare training film and an exercise in queering the public information genre. The film weaves ethnographic healthcare accounts from Birmingham’s trans+ community with moments of drag-satire re-enactment to depict a collective vision of the UK’s healthcare system.

The participants, appearing in the film as themselves, share some the pains, joys and exhaustions this community has felt trying to seek gender affirming care.

Dr. XYZ previewed at BFI Southbank in November 2023 and will be available on BFI Player in 2024.
