Against the backdrop of the preparations for a seminal LGBTQ Pride celebration in Nunavut, this thoughtful documentary looks at the challenges faced by LGBTQ Inuit and how a new generation is forging a more inclusive society.

Colonialism and Christianity dismantled Inuit family structures and taught Inuit to feel shame for their traditional beliefs, erasing their acceptance of diverse sexuality. This loss of cultural identity has created barriers for LGBTQ Inuit. But change is underfoot - activists, artists, politicians and youth are working to 'unshame' their past.

This warm film shows how the growing embrace of LGBTQ Inuit is helping the whole community on its journey to heal the past.
