As our society becomes more fluid on issues of gender, enabling Canadians to feel more secure in publicly identifying as transgender, genderqueer (non-binary gender identification) or cisgender (everyone else), how should institutions (schools, workplaces, public), adapt to prevent discrimination and harassment? What can be done to deepen the public’s understanding of gender identity and expression? And how can communities lend a helping hand?
Spur learns from Toronto’s transgender community and supporters about the transformative journey people embark on to find their true selves and the challenges they face along the way.
This events features an opening performance by poet Trish Salah.
