Add to Calendar 2019-01-21 15:30:00 2019-01-21 17:00:00 A History of Ongoing Resistance This event centres around learning more about Two Spirit and Indigenous LGBTQ+ identities and histories, and unpacking the ways in which understandings of queer and trans identities are so often entrenched in colonial conceptions of gender and sexuality. We will be joined by guest speaker Seán Kinsella, who will be sharing some of the histories of 2S and Indigenous LGBTQ+ folks, as well as the activism that has grown out of these communities and the continued efforts towards decolonization. Attendees will also be invited to look through a series of early newsletters, posters, and photo albums of 2S groups provided by the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA). And finally, we will end the event with an activity in writing personalized land acknowledgments in order to reflect upon our relationship and commitments to the land we are on, as settlers or as Indigenous folks. Seán Kinsella is a 2Spirit nêhi(y/th)aw/otipemisiwak/Nakawé/Irish Indigenous community activist who has a Masters of Education from OISE in Higher Education with a focus on leadership. They have facilitated keynotes and presentations internationally and have supervised student staff in Student Housing for over a decade and are a Professor of Indigenous Studies at Centennial College in Tkaronto.
