In collaboration with the Aboriginal Resource Centre, we invite you to join us for All My Intersectional Relations, a brunch and discussion with two-spirit educators and young leaders. In recognition of National Indigenous History Month and Pride, All My Intersectional Relations will explore the intersections of indigeneity and queer identity. We will discuss how our histories are remembered, what they mean to us today, and where they will take us tomorrow.
