Trans, two-spirit, gender non-conforming, and gender questioning food share and meet-up @ Doug Fluhrer Park
On Thursday, May 28th @ Doug Fluhrer Park there will be a space to come together and eat for those who are trans, two-spirit, gender non-conforming, or questioning their gender.
Bring yourself, bring a friend, bring food, bring blankets, bring whatever makes you comfortable
no one will be turned away but we ask that trans, two-spirit, gender non-conforming, and gender questioning folks are at the centre of this event.
******* Wondering what Gender is?*******
not everybody knows what gender is and that’s totally okay.
gender is hard to define and is not limited to the following definition by any means. gender is best left up for the individual to define for themselves so please be respectful of each person’s definition and how it has formed their identity
gender is how we think of ourselves…
… as masculine (like “men”) or feminine (like “women”)
or both of these
or neither of these
or all three
or somewhere in between
or something completely unrelated to masculine (“man”) or feminine (“woman”)
gender is not limited to these definitions.
gender is something that can shift and change for a person, but stays consistent or the same for others
gender is diverse and unique and we must respect how each person defines gender for themselevs
we will have name tags to write your preferred name and gender pronoun, if you’d like to
pronoun examples are: ze, she, they, he, etc., but there are many pronouns and it’s best to ask respectively what pronouns a person would like you to use while referring to them
See you Thursday for some good food!
