Fluid: Life Beyond the Binary (2024)


Popular nonbinary Canadian comedian and TV sitcom creator Mae Martin explores the science of gender and sexual fluidity.

Mae meets scientists responsible for the latest discoveries, observes and participates in on-camera experiments, encounters sexually fluid non-human life forms, and meets a group of gender non-conforming youth. Along the way, Mae shares their reflections through hilarious material from their live standup performances.

Produced by Kensington for CBC’s The Nature of Things, Fluid debunks dangerous zombie-science and introduces viewers to fascinating recent breakthroughs that show how and why gender fluidity exists throughout the living world – discoveries that reveal that in a very real and measurable sense… we are all gender fluid.

Fluid: Life Beyond the Binary premieres on CBC TV March 28, 2024 at 9 p.m. ET, with subsequent on-demand streaming in Canada on CBC GEM and broad international release.
