LGBTQ+ Newcomer series – Messages to Trans Youth (Community Writing Session)

March 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre is a Community Center that offers Settlement services to Newcomers to Canada here in Niagara. We are collaborating with the Brock Student Justice Centre for this event!

Join us and connect with community and write messages of support and affirmation for trans youth to celebrate Trans Day of Visibility! We aim to create a learning space for newcomers and non-newcomers to learn more about trans-affirming language and to show their support for gender diverse youth in our communities!

The session will begin with some community connection exercises led by Simon Calaycay, and then Jasper Fisher will provide a brief training on the importance of gender-affirming language. Following, we will allot time for attendees to write messages or support and affirmation for Trans and gender diverse youth in Niagara. We will then offer the opportunity for attendees to share their messages if they wish. Messages can also be submitted during the session and, with your consent, may be shared on Brock SJC, Niagara Folks Arts, and community partners’ social media pages.

This event is open to everyone, including community members.

Please don’t hesitate to register! Our staff members are here to make your experience informative and comfortable.
