We want a welcome, safe and inclusive environment for trans youth of colour in Toronto. For this to happen, it’s imperative to understand the complexities of gender and race as well as the difference between sex and gender. Trans youth of colour are part of Toronto’s LGBTQ community yet they are underserved and often experience neglect, bias and violence because of transphobia and racism. We partnered with the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP) and a committee of trans youth of colour from across the city to develop this campaign and inform, educate and create opportunities to learn about these issues.
Trans is an umbrella term that describes the unique experience of gender for people who do not identify with the sex they were assigned at birth.
Thanks to the amazing contributions of the Community Advisory Committee in helping to develop this educational campaign that focuses on transgender youth of colour in Toronto.
