As school divisions implement mandatory LGBTQ policies across the prairies and Canadians celebrate the progressive implementation of more inclusive policies to protect children regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity, Spur takes pause to wonder about the degree of inclusion after school lets out. How can both Canadians at-large and their institutions (schools, workplaces, public) adapt to prevent discrimination and harassment for not just children, but adults, too? What can be done to deepen the public’s understanding of gender identity and expression; and how can communities lend a helping hand?
This event will feature a performance buy Spur Poet-in-Residence Sophie-Phoenix Lavoie.
This event will be introduced by the Executive Director of the Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties (MARL).
