Part 1: Queer + Trans History in Canada
Registration required: https://us02web.zoom.us/…/reg…/WN_HrQBtqyVTqqKNjQQsl4RPg

This workshop will take you through the highlights of Canada’s history, including milestone moments during each decade! We will journey from the 1950s, when homosexuality was considered to be a “curable illness” to today, given in bite-sized pieces. Did you know that Quebec was the 2nd place in the world to provide human rights protections? Or that the Canadian Navy’s 1st kiss was on BC soil? We will see just how far our laws and media have come in regards to 2SLGBTQIA+ consideration. We will also highlight some of the rights and protections we are still fighting for today! We welcome you to join us in learning more about queer and trans history.
