We acknowledge that this event and our organizing activities take place on unceded Algonquin territory. We seek to centre decolonization in our work and our selves.
This event is hosted in conjunction with
Kind Space and Ontario Public Interest Research Group — OPIRG Carleton.
This film may not be for everyone. Due to the intense nature of its topics (violence against transwomen, militarization, and death), we will be debriefing the audience before and after the film with content warnings and protocols when scenes of the film become too intense. We have LGBTQ-identified peer support persons designated in the event if you would like some support or want to connect in another space.
