“There’s always been a resistance to believe that this actually happened in Canada.” – Sarah Fodey
For 40 years, the Canadian government identified, interrogated, and expelled LGBTQ people from the public sector and military. Colin was joined by director Sarah Fodey and Canadian Armed Forces veteran Patti Gray for a special screening of The Fruit Machine, a TVO original documentary. They discuss this largely unknown aspect of Canadian history and why it must be brought to light. (Recorded live at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema)
Guests: Sarah Fodey and Patti Gray. Host: Colin Ellis, Producer: Chantal Braganza, Technical Producer: Matthew O'Mara, Production Coordinator: Caitlin Plummer, Podcast Manager: Hannah Sung.
