Workshop Series 1 / Série d’ateliers 1 – 13:00­14:00 Please choose one. S’il vous plaît, choisir un atelier. Decolonizing Gender Identity and Two­Spirit Roles on Turtle Island Kole Peplinskie Trigger warning: Mention of colonialism, residential schools, and transphobia. This workshop will give the history of the term two­spirit, a neo­tradition started as a result of the impacts of colonialism on queer Indigenous peoples. Through this workshop, participants will learn about the history of two­spirit and queer folks and their place on Turtle Island before settler colonialism, and how we can move forward to decolonize the gender binary today. Workshop may also include patch making art activity, time permitting. Racism in Society Savoy Williams Workshop will discuss the racialization of people of colour (POC) in queer communities. This workshop seeks to draw the connections between intersectionalities of identities and consequent racial discrimination faced by queer people of colour. LGBTQ+ Interfaith Panel El­Farouk Khaki, Jade Pichette, Rabbi Andrea Myers, Reverend Carmen Llanos. Panelists of various faiths will discuss being queer within their religious communities. This panel aims to provide LGBTQ+ religious folks with ways to reconcile their gender and sexual orientations in religious communities that may be generally discriminatory. Ma culture n’est pas une tendance Roselyne Dougé­Charles Attention ­ Sujets sensibles: Racisme, harcèlement. La musique populaire, les vêtements, les coiffures venant d'autres cultures sont tous très attirants, j'en suis sûr, mais est­il a nous de profiter de cela? Des gestes comme porter un sari, se coiffer en ``bantu knots``, parler en vernaculaire afro­americain ou se costumer avec des vêtements traditionnels des Premiers Nations cachents des dynamiques de pouvoir très profondens et ne sont pas innofensifs. Pendant cet atelier nous allons découvrir, déconstruire ou questionner les choses que aimons et faire les connections avec le racisme, l`harcèlement, et l`appropriation culturelle. Workshop Series 2 / Série d’ateliers – 14:15 ­15:15 Please choose one. S’il vous plaît, choisir un atelier. Bi and Trans Panel Logan Young.

Non­Binary Identities Workshop Faelix Kayn and Eli Participants will be invited to re­examine their ideas about gender while learning about various non binary gender identities and how to make GSAs (and other spaces) more inclusive, safe, and accessible.

While no oppressive language or behaviour will be tolerated, the topics themselves will be discussed.
