Speed Date with CBC’s ‘Sort Of’ co-creator and star Bilal Baig

“It’s not actually difficult to not focus on pain all the time”

Co-writer and co-executive producer Bilal Baig is looking forward to working on another season of CBC’s Sort Of. The queer, trans-feminine, Muslim actor says viewers can expect the same mix of humour, ache and drama in the newly announced second season. Baig talks to Xtra about creating an authentic narrative of trans joy and how they find humour in everyday life.

While we wait for the yet-to-be-announced release date of Season 2, you can catch up on the first season of Sort Of on CBC Gem and HBO Max.
