Who We Are:
We are a group of people who have been subjected to discrimination and harassment by society based on our sex and gender. We have been trained in anti-oppression work by some of the best social agencies in the province.
Where are we:
We are located in Toronto and London Ontario. We are available to do workshops anywhere, although there are travel expenses if we are outside our immediate area.
What we do:
We provide light workshops designed to breakdown the binary gender constructs of society in a fun, entertaining manner. We tell our personal stories on how oppression has affected our lives, the lives of our friends, families and co-workers. We define terminology and help people understand the difference between sex and gender.
What we are not:
Boring! We do not use overhead projectors and pre-set slide shows. We use an interactive approach that is fun and entertaining to get our message across in a non-threatening educational environment.
(Schools, Daycares, Shelters, Community Centres, etc.)
Our youth workshops are geared to the age of the people involved. Our language, topics covered and sensibilities of the audience are taken in consideration. Our youth workshops can be used to solve problems when someone associated with the group comes out or as general education.
When an employee comes out as transgendered they are confronted with a lot of questions by co-workers. This is a natural progression which is unfair to the individual transitioning. Our workshops are geared to answer those questions, deal with the bathroom issue, and generally educate the employee’s co-workers so they can co-exist in the workplace in unity.
Human Resources/ Management Workshops
We provide strategies to help management deal with an employee coming out in the workplace. How to manage the challenges around human rights, washrooms, morale and other employees who simply cannot accept the person.
We do workshops for any group who needs our services. We help LGBTQ groups understand what the ‘T’ means.
