– What is the importance of celebrating remembrance days like the Trans Day of Remembrance?
– What other steps can we as a community take to memorialize trans lives and trans histories?
– How can we and the communities around us better support trans folks, both during and outside of remembrance days?
November 20th is the Trans Day of Remembrance and for this month’s Gender Talk discussion, we will be talking about the importance of celebrating the lives and histories of trans folks. We will also be talking about how we, and the rest of our communities, can better support ourselves and other trans folks during and outside of remembrance days.
We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, or who are questioning their gender identity to come meet each other and talk about topics that matter to us.
Gender Talk is a monthly conversation café for trans+ students at U of T. We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, non-binary or who are questioning their gender identity to come together to talk about the issues that you want to talk about. Connect with other students and guest facilitators as we share our thoughts, experiences and questions!
We encourage everyone to show up at 12:00 pm, if you can. At that time, the facilitator will introduce themselves and encourage everyone to share their name. After that, the facilitator will guide us in a conversation, though the direction really depends on the people present. The conversation wraps up at 1:30 pm, but students are encouraged to remain in the lounge to hang out, chat informally and enjoy the snacks.
