 2018 Speaking Tour with Cara Tierney & Behc Jax-Lynx 

Hey rural and suburban Ontario! We are headed your way!!!

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.
