logo THE SWIMMING CLUB (Exclusive)

Synopsis The Swimming Club from directors Cecilia Golding and Nick Finegan highlights one such safe space—a literal and figurative oasis for those who just want to go swimming. In this short doc, we meet a group of transgendered people from TAGS, a gender-non-conforming swimming club in the UK. The TAGS participants create an inclusive sense of community in a public pool. Every time they convene, they foster an experience that is miraculously absent of worry, prejudice, and judgement. We need to hear from more diverse voices promoting inclusion. And, well, The Swimming Club is a perfect representative example of that sort of sentiment. 9 minutes, 2019. Directed by  Ceci Golding & Nick Finegan .
