Are you curious what all those letters mean in the acronym LGTBQ2S+? Do you want guidance on the expanding number of gender pronouns out there, and how to use them properly? There’s a big, diverse Queer community in Calgary, and this event will introduce you to its rich history and diversity. We promise a fun and informative night of learning about Calgary’s Queer history and how you can be an ally to all Calgarians who are part of our extended Queer community.
The night begins with Lougheed House staff giving you a guided tour of the Outliers exhibit – full of artifacts and ephemera, video and photographs – that reveal Calgary’s queer history. And then James Demers from Calgary’s Queer Arts Society will give his Trans/Non-Binary 101 workshop all about the language, lived experience, and context of Trans people and their families. James is charming, quick witted and funny, and his workshop is a safe space for you to bring your questions and curiosity. This will be a great learning opportunity for all to enjoy. All participants of all backgrounds are welcome.
