We’ve almost finished up all the logistical work for our upcoming event Never Alone: LGBTQ+ activism and collective action forum. We’ve partnered up with the lovely folks at Humber’s LGBTQ+ Resource Centre to find some passionate speakers to talk about community organizing and what people can do to help make change in their own communities.
Tara Farahani is an award-winning social worker, advocate, and writer whose work has featured in the Huffington Post and the Journal of Critical Anti-Oppressive Social Inquiry.
Akia Munga is the outreach coordinator at the Black Coalition for Aids Prevention and co-chair of Toronto’s Harm Reduction Alliance. His advocacy focuses African Caribbean Black Trans & Non-Binary folks who have sex with men.
Christopher Karas was inaugurated into the “Legion of Queer Heroes” at World Pride 2014 for his advocacy work challenging the Catholic School Board’s stance on Gay-Straight Alliances, and continues his advocacy challenging Canada’s Gay Blood Ban.
