A free workshop for 2SLGBTQ+ racialized and Indigenous folx, centred around healing
Join Shanese Anne for a workshop centred around healing. Please note that registration is reserved for 2SLGBTQ+ racialized and Indigenous folx.
This free workshop takes place on Zoom. Please register here.
In this workshop, participants will explore their understanding of sexuality, gender and identity to ultimately find ways to affirm, grow and heal within themselves. Through videos, group discussions and activities we will break through colonial and cis heteronormative understandings of being healthy.
The first 20 people from the Ottawa-Gatineau region to register will receive a free kit of medicines to use during the workshop.
This workshop is supported by the Reesa Greenberg Digital Initiatives Fund.
Access This workshop will be live captioned. If you need any accommodations to participate, please email Fiona Wright and we will be happy to arrange.
