Session

What If More Neighbourhoods Were Designed For Inclusive Space?

September 25, 2018 6:00 PM

Toronto is often touted as a bastion of inclusivity and diversity – a place where everyone is welcome. However, if we take a deeper look, is this true? This session will trouble and complicate Toronto’s LGBTQ2I past and present. It will expose how the Village emerged as a commercial centre rather than a political one and will discuss the exclusions that exist within this “diverse” space. Come challenge the way you think about Toronto as a tolerant city and imagine a queerer more inclusive future.
