 Holding our trans and gender diverse communities in thought – we send love, care, honor and pay respect to those who came before us, to those who are not with us today and to those who will follow us into the future.

Speaking Tour with Cara Tierney & Behc Jax-Lynx 

Sneak preview interview from Almonte! Small Town Discoveries @ Almonte Old Town Hall.

We are a dynamic duo dedicated to the de-stigmatization of transgender individuals, best practices, gender affirmation, human rights policy (C-16) and equity for universal gender diversity.

We go beyond the basic definitions of transgender, non-binary, gender fluid, gender non-conforming and present a beautiful and expansive understanding of health, well-being, history, art, creativity, allyship, expression and the current human rights legislation Bill C-16.  Our backgrounds include art, history, social work, activism, anti-oppression work, education, performance, high fives and … humour.

We are offering creative and interactive afternoon professional development workshops as well as evening parent/community-based workshops designed to foster constructive, affirmative and forward-thinking dialogues on how we can make space for everyone.


Public Speaking for May & June will be posted in April !
