What’s That Got To Do With Us? Building Unlikely Alliances in Radical Queer and Trans Politics
7-9pm, Chez Boris, 5151 Avenue du Parc
The evening will consist of a screening of the 2014 film Pride with members of the Prisoner Correspondence Project. The screening of the film will be followed by a discussion about Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) and other instances of radical queer/trans organizing around issues that aren’t explicitly on gender and sexuality, and in particular the work done at the Prisoner Correspondence Project.
The Prisoner Correspondence Project is a collectively run initiative based out of Montreal. It coordinates a direct-correspondence program for gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, gendervariant, two-spirit, intersex, bisexual, and queer inmates in Canada and the United States, linking these inmates with people part of these same communities outside of prison. The PCP will also help attendees who are interested in becoming pen pals get matched up, if they’re interested!
