Pride Flag Giveaway
Within the queer community there are various minorities and identities that have created their own symbols of Pride that are not being equally represented in public spaces. LGBTQQIP2SAA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Pansexual, Two-Spirit, Asexual, Allies and more) flags created by artist Arjun Lal will be available for free or by donation. This project was created by Lal with support from the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. Lal is expected to graduate with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from NSCAD University in 2019 and is planning to continue making work about queer culture.

Evening Speakers Series: ft. Phillip Pike - The Transformative Power of Community
Director Phillip Pike will screen his new film Our Dance of Revolution. Protest and passion ground this documentary which is a long-overdue look at Toronto’s Black LGBTQ community, featuring a rousing oral history of struggle and triumph from four decades of local legends and freedom fighters. This is the story of the transformative power of community building. It’s the story of what happens when folks step out of their private comfort zones and step up to create community where there was none; step up to create activist, social, cultural and spiritual spaces where there were none reflecting the fullness of who they are. Following the screening Phillip will share stories and engage us in a dialogue about the transformative power of community building.

Evening Speakers Series: ft. Vincent Mousseau - Searching for Belonging at the Intersection of Black, Queer and Trans Identity
Vincent likes to say that they exist at a crossroads. As a Black queer and trans community organizer, educator, and activist, their identities are an inseparable part of the ways in which they interact with the world. Unfortunately, their search for belonging has been inextricably linked to their connections with these identities, and it has been an uphill battle to find a sense of community along the way. Their talk will be a narrative exploration of these and other identities, shedding a light on an ever-evolving quest to find community in TSLGBTQ+ spaces. Vincent will integrate their anti- racist and queer community organizing experience in order to deconstruct the ways in which marginalized folks are pushed out of these spaces, emphasizing the ways we can build communities of solidarity and support, together. More information about their work can be found at www.vincentmousseau.net.
