Meat Train's story coming to Attitude TV

Thu 23 Apr 2015 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

A documentary telling the story of a roller derby player who is losing her hearing will feature on New Zealand screens this Sunday morning. Marcia Taylor, aka Meat Train, featured on late last year, with her partner Alexia Garbutt sharing their love story, and the challenges and discrimination they have faced. Taylor’s story has been filmed for a piece on Attitude TV called Two Sides of Me. “It will show how Marcia, our young family and I are navigating this journey into the deaf world together and it will show how the very public discrimination she faced last year has affected her,” Garbutt says. “Here's to more rainbow families being visible on TVs in New Zealand living rooms as everyday families that deal with issues, not just BECAUSE they are GLBTIQ+.” Garbutt would love people to spread the word “so more of our children can see similar families”. The documentary will screen at 8.30am this Sunday on TV One. It will be available for viewing and sharing online at shortly afterwards. Check out a teaser clip below
