  • The Maltese Body: Gender, Sex and...
Episode notes

In Episode 20 we start our investigations into the gender and sexuality diverse culture within Malta. In the first episode of this two-parter, we interview gynaecologist and transgender healthcare specialist Dr Chiara Frendo-Balzan about the climate of gendered healthcare in Malta. As our research continues, our lens of inquiry expands as we begin to understand the unequal access to healthcare across Malta and the enduring taboo surrounding abortion in this staunchly Catholic country.
