CALL OUT FOR PRIDE TORONTO TRANS MARCH COMMITTEE MEMBERS

 

**Please distribute widely**

 

**We apologize for cross-postings**

 

The Pride Toronto Trans March co-ordinators would like to invite community members and organizers to join us for the first Trans March Committee Meeting of 2011.

 

At the initial meeting we will be discussing performers, speakers, and workshops created, facilitated by and directed towards the transgender and gender variant community at the Pride Toronto Festival. This initial meeting’s agenda includes creating an outline for the Trans March, Trans Stage, Trans After Party (“Transparency”) and the Trans Space.

 

As co-ordinators we are dedicated towards creating transparency around the organization and implementation of Trans Pride. A detailed agenda will be available before the meeting at the “Pride Toronto Trans March 2011” facebook page. Please “like” this page for up-to-date information. We will also be emailing and posting the agenda and outcome of the meeting. If you would like to be added to our mailing list please email us.

 

We encourage those unable to attend the meeting to offer feedback/ concerns/suggestions via email to transmarch@pridetoronto.com.

 

We would love to hear from trans and gender variant people about the specifics they would like to see included in Pride. We have no interest in continuing the history of tokenism and exclusion that has been the experience of the trans and gender variant community thus far. We do need your help by volunteering your ideas and time and/or being on the committee so that we can accomplish everything we as a community need and want out of the festival.

 

**It is mandatory for individuals attend two committee meetings to become a Committee Member** Committee members can vote at Pride Toronto general meetings.
