Perhaps most heartbreaking of all, radical queer and social justice communities often seem intent on tearing each other apart through call-out culture, political infighting, and punitive justice just when we need each other most. Coinciding with the launch of her new book I HOPE WE CHOOSE LOVE: A Trans Girl's Notes from the End of the World, Kai Cheng Thom offers this informal, discussion-based workshop as a healing space for community members who are searching for a better way to love one another. Kai Cheng will offer some practical tools for resolving intra-community conflict, transforming call-out culture, and working as activists to heal collective trauma. Participants should come ready to respect their own and others' boundaries. The topics above may be emotionally challenging or triggering; therefore, self-care is encouraged. All workshop activities are optional. Venus Envy Ottawa Venus Envy Ottawa America/Toronto public
