We’ve published a number of articles this year exposing the transphobia of the
Sisters Cisters of Cinema group. However, it’s in the clash of opinions that we’ll find the truth – and to further this synthesis we have interviewed someone from the other side. Today we talk to Germaine of the Sisters Cisters of Cinema collective.
Editor: Germaine, welcome.
Germaine: Thanks! It’s great to be here.
So you are a core member of the collective, you told us. Are there many people working for you?
Well, it’s true we’ve had some budget problems. And several people walked out or flat out refused to help us anymore since we collaborated with a transphobe, and we fired the web designer, so to tell you the truth it’s been a bit quiet in the office. We’re trying to convince some more people to work for us for free, that should solve the problems.
Why don’t you tell us a bit about what’s been happening, the big controversy.
Well, we were hacked! The web designer – a young forty-year-old woman – changed our facebook page and our website, calling out to ‘pay webdesigners’ and ‘apologize for transphobia’ – and we just can’t have these hopeful, inspiring messages of change. That’s why we wanted to set the record straight.
