Aunt Phyllis’ Boots

Aunt Phyllis’ Boots is a video from the Cancer’s Margins project. This project used a community-and-arts based approach to exploring sexual and gender diversity, and experiences of cancer health, support and care.  The researchers worked with the participants to develop a series of digital stories that looked at how LGBT2Q people locate and share knowledge after they’ve been diagnosed and treated for breast or gynecologic cancer.

Aunt Phyllis’ Boots is a poignant familial archival documentation and narration of multiple histories of cancer, of loss, and of links across time, between lesbian histories, relationships and cancer experiences.
