You Don't Own Me

An intimate, living and breathing portrait of pride within Toronto's diverse LGBTQ+ community. Set to a modern cover of Lesley Gore's 'You Don't Own Me,' the subjects redefine its original message with their own take on the track. The result is a powerful ensemble of individuals holding two middle fingers up to homophobia, transphobia, hatred, and self-doubt.
