Facilitated by Ronnie Ali, R.P. (they, them, their) from Leaves on a Stream
Session 1: August 30, 2021 @ 5:30-6:30PM ET via ZOOM
Session 2: September 27, 2021 @ 5:30-6:30PM ET via ZOOM
Beyond the Binary invites industry peers to join us over two workshops, the first of which will review basic terms and concepts related to trans and nonbinary experiences, including an analysis of 'gender' based in intersectional anti-oppression, anti-racist, and decolonial perspectives. Participants will also learn about the impact of privilege and oppression while exploring best practices of meaningful accountability and harm reduction when working with trans and nonbinary communities. This is a valuable step in beginning to support trans and nonbinary creatives and voices in Ontario’s music sector.
For the second session, we invite participants to return with questions they might have after sitting with what they learned and experienced during the first session, once again facilitated by Ronnie Ali.
