Behold Dianna

Borderland Pride

Behold Dianna is a podcast miniseries celebrating the late Dianna Boileau, one of the first Canadians to receive gender-affirming surgery, back in the 1970s. In this series, you will hear Dianna's story in her own words, through a reading of her autobiographical novel, "Behold, I Am a Woman", originally written by Dianna with author Felicity Cochrane. This podcast is produced by Borderland Pride, the LGBTQ2 Pride organization serving the Rainy River District in Northwestern Ontario - the unconventional queer frontier where Dianna spent some of her formative years and gained support for her transition from a local physician. The series features present-day commentary, dramatic readings by members of Fort Frances Little Theatre, and audio of Dianna herself. Credits for individual episodes are provided in the descriptions and audio content. See the episode descriptions for content warnings. Inquiries may be directed to [email protected]
