  • Why is there an asterisk after trans* ?

    You have to realize that you are not expected to know all the rules but you are expected to ask questions and find the answers. It's not about political correctness. It's about validating the lives and shared experiences of real people who are going through real struggles.

    Trans* is an umbrella term that refers to all of the identities within the gender identity spectrum.

    The Trans* pride rally took place on Friday June 26 from George Hislop Park and ended at Dundas Square.

    Our gender identity and sexuality are not the same thing. We may not identify with the gender assigned to us at birth and that's ok.

    The LGBTQ movement needs to focus on its intersectionality and leverage the marginalized voices in its community rather than catering to mainstream narratives. This is a civil rights issue and we cannot keep ignoring it.
