This Sunday is Transgender Day of Remembrance. In light of this, there are various events happening in the days preceding. As mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, the Youth Project is unveiling new additions to its Trans Mosaic.
If you’re in the mood for something a little different and perhaps a tad more intellectual, S Bear Bergman, famed raconteur and self-proclaimed “instigator and gender-jammer” is hosting a talk at Dalhousie University. Entitled “Sex and The Very Serious Transperson,” the lecture is hosted and promoted by DalOut. The event takes place at the Dalhousie Student Union Building in Room 302, on the third floor of the building. The lecture begins at eight o’clock. You can find out more information here.
If you’re wondering what to do with your Friday, there’s an interesting event happening across town on another campus. SMUQ, the LGBTQ society at Saint Mary’s University, is presenting “Drag Your Heels,” an event hosted by Eureka Love and Farrah Moan. The show is happening at campus bar The Gorsebrook, with performances by Heckella Jeckyl, Kristi Davidson, Elle Noir, Bridget von Snaps and Kimberly Diamondz. You can get more information on the Facebook event page.
For something completely different on your Friday night, the Company House is hosting a fundraiser in support of the Red Thread Movement. The event is organized by the Go Girls Music Festival, a festival that has events from coast to coast. This year Go Girls is supporting the Red Thread Movement, which fights human trafficking in the sex trade of Nepal and India. The show has performances by Connie Saulnier, Christine Campbell, Breagh Potter, Amy Lee Blanchard, Kate Surette, Rosie Folks and more. You can check out the Facebook event page here.
