It’s something you probably take for granted every day and don’t even think about: going to the bathroom.
For transgender people, gender-queers and people who live outside binary gender norms, walking through a bathroom door can be statement, an act filled with anxiety or worse.
A few people in Halifax are looking to change that.
The Queer & Rebel Collective will be holding a meeting/flashmob to discuss the topic this Thursday, Feb 16 at Just Us! on Spring Garden Rd. You can get more details on their Facebook event page. The Queer & Rebel Collective is also responsible for the Queer & Rebel events that took place last year and in 2009. You can find out more about them on their website.
The folks at prideHealth are also holding an information session on this topic at noon on Monday, Feb 20 at RBC Lecture Theatre at the Halifax Infirmary. The lecture is being hosted by both prideHealth and the Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG). You can get more info about the event here.
