A few days ago Patagonia released the 70-minute film “They / Them”, which is about Lor Sabourin, an Arizona-based climber who identifies as trans * and uses the pronoun “they / them”.

The filmmakers of They / Them follow Lor through the sandstone canyons of northern Arizona on a climbing route that is also one of the most difficult but also most inspiring routes that Lor has ever mastered.

For Lor, climbing is more than just a sport, it is a way of exploring your own identity and building the necessary strength to face the adversities of life. In climbing, Lor found the space to develop and built a community in which other trans * people also feel at home.
