Metis Knowledge Holder Benny Michaud on Decolonizing Gender & Sexuality

June 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

It’s the tea & chat we’ve all been longing for! Engage in our online speaker series of Indigenous QT2S+ Elders & kin to learn about their traditional teachings, stories, and dreams around gender & sexuality!

Location: IG Live @cdnroots

If you have your fingers crossed on a topic you want speakers to talk about, share your ideas via dm / stay tuned for an Insta story poll on June 2nd (elders) and June 27th (youth panel)!
