Our next General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 24 at 7.00 pm in the McKernan Hall 11341 78 Ave NW. PLEASE NOTE this is a new location for our meetings.
There will be two speakers. The first is Junaid Jahangir, a MacEwan University professor and writer, who will speak about LGBT issues and rights in Muslim communities and the second is Marni Panas, a transgender rights advocate in Edmonton who was co-organizer of the recent protest at the Legislature in favour of Alberta's Bill 10. She just returned from Ottawa this week from the unveiling of Bill C-16, the newly introduced bill creating federal protections for people identifying as transgender. She will speak about those two bills and the ongoing fight for transgender rights in our province and country.
Our meetings are open to members of the public.
Please come out and support us.
