Services for 2SLGBTQIA families in the Greater Toronto Area are limited, and have tended to be concentrated in the downtown core. ⁣
⁣
Birth Mark’s 2SLGBTQIA Family Programming attempts to fill some of these service gaps by offering programs across the city for 2SLGBTQIA parents, parents-to-be, and their families. ⁣
⁣
Through these programs, Birth Mark hopes to create a welcoming and accessible space for families to connect and learn together. ⁣
All programming will be facilitated by Gabrielle Griffith @themotherlandco ⁣

So if anyone's been wondering why I dropped off the face of the earth for a couple weeks, I've been busting my butt along with the rest of the Project Rainbow board and all of our amazing volunteers to help save #MedicineHatPride ... and we totally did!
.
Yesterday it all came to fruition with the Pride In The Park Festival and Pride After Dark. I got to meet so many fantastic new people (and reconnect with a few long-lost friends). One of those new people I met (thanks to the ACLRC for bringing him and his husband down here) was Boban Stojanovic, who came here to escape persecution in Serbia and now works with LGBTQ+ refugees from the End of the Rainbow Foundation and the Centre for Newcomers in Calgary. Both his flag raising speech and his presentation on welcoming LGBTQ+ newcomers literally brought me to tears. I feel a renewed sense of commitment to my activism and advocacy work and I feel empowered by the new information I have to be able to help put in place positive change in our little Medicine Hat community.

Wednesday Sept 11 - Just over four and a half months of hiking North on the Continental Divide through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana... and I've made it back home (04/23/19-09/11/19)! 🇨🇦 Although home is abstract, Canada is it... and I'm incredibly grateful I can call it so. I'm sad to be parting ways with people I care deeply about who have followed the same path from Mexico to Canada. A platonic love fest like no other that has been full of so much goodness that it will take some time to fully process. Without the kindness, love, support, and ongoing encouragement from trail family, friends, family, and strangers it's unlikely any of us would have succeeded. The @thruhikesyndicate has been amazing this trek (@darntoughvermont @vasquefootwear @nemoequipment @lekiusa @ospreypacks ) as they have whole heartedly supported my efforts to raise funds and awareness for Canada's first non-profit queer centered gym space out of Edmonton, AB, while supplying shoes and gear along the way! On a less bright note, I will share that it broke my heart to learn as of getting of the trail this week that as of September 10th, Queerflex had to temporarily close for safety reasons after being targeted and threatened by an online hate group. They are currently working with a police hate crimes unit and if nothing else, this highlights not only the need for safe spaces for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community but the need to band together and support eachother. Thank-you so much to everyone that has donated to the Trekking for Queerflex fundraiser and shown support to Queerflex thus far. I've been blown away by the ways people have shown up from various countries from around the world. CONTINUED IN COMMENTS...

Next Saturday, September 14 is the #medhat Pride Festival hosted by @projrainbowmh & @medicinehatpride! We’ll be there with some of our LGBTQ+ materials and our beloved button maker so make sure to stop by and say hi! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’re also celebrating Pride by showing the movie ‘Booksmart’ (14A) in our Theatre next Thursday at 6:30pm. This coming-of-age comedy, directed by Olivia Wilde, follows two academic superstars and best friends on the eve of their high school graduation as they realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
You don’t want to miss this great comedy (it got 97% on @rottentomatoes)!

Matkai Burmaster (He/Him)

Matkai arrived in Toronto from Sudbury when he was 19, fuelled by his passion for acting. That passion led him to become an actor, screenwriter, and director of independent films. Those of you who follow along with Matkai on Instagram ( @matkaiburmaster ) already know that he's an entertainer through and through, with his goofy and fun dance videos, comedy skits, Q & Slay, and singalongs. But he's also an incredibly hard worker, having successfully championed two businesses and too many film projects to count. As a gay and bisexual man, Matkai had an intimate understanding of the ways in which minority groups experience a lack of representation in film. He was also searching for a way to distribute his own indie content to a wider audience. In response, he and co-founder Deanna Widmeyer ( @deannawidmeyer ) gave us Fearless: a streaming platform that exclusively showcases independent films. Fearless has been around for 3 years and in that time they've helped independent creators from around the world showcase their work on the platform and present LGBTQ+ content in a way that is fresh and modern. When he's not creating new content and working on Fearless, you might catch Matkai around Church and Wellesley, Hanlan's Point, or rollerblading through the park listening to T-Swift. Keep an eye out for his upcoming queer comedy series out next year!

Vero Diaz (She/They)

Vero Diaz grew up in mountains of Guatemala, and the deserts and hills of Mexico. They are a lover of mangoes and chocolate, and their favourite flower is jasmin. They enjoy card reading, watercolours, and alchemy magic. As she moved through the world, Vero became more and more focused on the stories of her indigenous ancestors. She sought to create a healing path for herself and her people, and to find her way to rise back into power, self-possession, and ultimate freedom. During her Masters at York University, she researched the root causes of ancestral trauma in Latinx and Indigenous people from the Americas’. She dwelled deep into the divine feminine, indigenous ways of knowing, queer theory, and perfomance theory. Through this process, she came out to herself; first as an artist, then simultaneously as a medicine woman or bruxa, polyamorous lover, and as a non-binary queer femme. Having always felt a call to serve, Vero wanted others to have the tools and support to unravel, liberate, and embrace their true divine nature as she had. All this birthed Phoenix Rising Studio (@phoenixrisingstudio). Phoenix Rising Studio helps womxn and non-binary people express their divinity through ritual photography, workshops, and events. The aim of the platform is to nourish people’s intimate connections to themselves and Mother Earth, and to help others rise from the ashes.

Gab & Cat (She, Her)

Meet Gab and Cat. They're romantic partners, business partners, dog moms, cat moms, roommates, and best friends. Gab (right) is a drama kid from a large Jewish Family in Montreal, who moved to Toronto a few years back to pursue an acting career. She's the kind of person you want in your corner at Star Trek trivia night, and a Streisand superfan. After moving to Toronto and deciding that life as an aspiring actress wasn't for her, Gab turned to another lifelong passion - animals. She began walking dogs for a company uptown, and also started dating a cute girl ironically named Cat. Cat (left) was in a similar situation; she had moved to Toronto from Montreal, and wasn't feeling fulfilled at her job with Ram Trucks. She saw potential in what Gab was doing, and prompted her to start her own dogwalking business. With a little nudge, the two eventually decided to jump ship on their old jobs and take the plunge. That's where Walk 'n Roll Dogs (@walknrollto) comes in. Walk n' Roll is a company that provides dog walking, dog boarding, doggy daycare, and home visits. Since the two first started a few years ago, this business has exploded - expanding its service area, taking on more team members and company vans, and even opening up an in-home daycare! Oh yeah, and Gab and Cat got married.

what does indigineity mean to me? it means being accountable to the people whose land we live on, holding each other accountable by helping to protect sacred sites, standing up to corporations who stand to profit from polluting and pillaging our waters, and sustaining a way of life that honors our elders and ancestors by what we do every day. yesterday was world indigenous day, which celebrates our collective indigineity throughout the world. despite being colonized by the spanish for 500 years, and then later the americans, filipinos have been holding it down from the jump...from the indigenous communities in the cordillera region of luzon to the lumad folx in mindanao, the katipunans at the turn of the last century fighting for our collective freedoms to the manongs in delano fighting for basic human rights. s/o to my ancestors for paving the way for us to do great things,  big ups to my native california brethren learning the old ways, revitalizing their language, foods and art, and props to all the allies and accomplices who recognize this stolen land as a special place to be honored, revered and protected for many generations to come #indigenous #worldindigenousday #indigineity #indigenius #bipoc #poc #2slgbtqia #diversifyoutdoors #diversityinadventure #brownpeoplecamping #unlikelyhikers #melaninbasecamp #parks4all #latinooutdoors #outdoorafro #nativesoutdoors #outdoorasian #asianoutsider #filipinx #tuibun #chochenyoterritory #coyotehills #ebrpd85 #regram @rovingramenriceranger : @nativebeautyspirit

Us Inuit survived off raw meat, but now we are restricted with how many animals we are allowed to hunt, and that's even if there is are any around. The Inuit went through the biggest cultural change out of any other culture in the world; we went from the ice age to the technology age in one generation. The government put lots of restrictions on our wild meat and now we're forced to eat settler food, that destroys our stomachs because our parents, grand parents and great grandparents only ate raw meat and greens.

Feeding Canada @feedingcanada

Feeding Canada is an Indigenous-youth led campaign that provides food and supplies to remote northern communities in Nunavut, where shockingly high costs have made basic necessities inaccessible. Food prices are up to 10x higher than the national average and most children are going hungry. By purchasing any Feeding Canada items or donating money, you can help them ship collected donations to Nunavut and other northern remote communities. .

Nanook Gordon also encourages you to donate to Tiny House Warriors (@tinyhousewarriors ) or Onaman Collective (onamancollective.com).

Nanook Gordon (They/Them)

Our next feature hails all the way from Inuvik, NWT. They've been described as a badass by those who know them for all their land and water protection work. They also play a mean game of basketball, and make the best quinoa salad you've ever had. Nanook moved to Cape Breton, NS, at a young age, and then to Toronto when they were about 12 years old. While reconnecting with their Inuk roots years ago, they came across photos of the staggering prices of food in remote northern communities. Having experienced homelessness and hunger themselves in Toronto, they felt a strong personal connection and duty to help those affected. They began collecting food and supplies from their peers, and shipping them to families in Nunavut. Thus, Feeding Canada was born, an Indigenous-youth led campaign that provides food and supplies to remote northern communities. Nanook has been running this organization for three years, and hopes to continue to expand its scope having recently received charity status. When they're not protecting Mother Earth, speaking out about addiction and homelessnes, or organizing rallies, you can catch Nanook at the local dog park, listening to Indigenous Hip Hop, or hanging out with their partner Cindy. .

Instagram lost my attention (at least for now) when I traveled away from home a couple of weeks ago but I wanted to at least attempt to put a stop to what I'm seeing in notifications. As election fervor grows stronger, my art and words are increasingly being shared/used as promotional material for political candidates with their names in the captions and hashtags. As in, If you agree with this message, vote for... My art is about abolishing all systems of oppression (including the u.s. gov) and recognizing what true liberation looks like. Politicians don't liberate. And politicians don't abolish governments that employ them, even when they have no jurisdiction over the land and people being ruled. In the very best case scenario, a politician in theory could temporarily offer some harm reduction if they are less corrupted by their power than whatever politician would otherwise be in their place. I'm not saying not to vote for the sake of potential harm reduction...but there is no reformed version of a government occupying and ruling over people on their stolen land that will ever equate to liberation, justice, freedom, or decolonization. For these reasons and so many more, the message of my art will never align with a politician and I do not permit its use in this way. Thank you, Northern Oak Designs/Sairy
