“A Regina judge has ruled that the Saskatchewan government's naming and pronoun policy should be paused for the time being, but Premier Scott Moe says he'll use the notwithstanding clause to override it.” Now there’s an asshole! #2SLGBTQIA #LGBTQ #HumanRights #skpoli #cdnpoli

“I don’t support people that don’t have room in their hearts for my son,” said Marc Savoie on why he could no longer be aligned with New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs. #2SLGBTQIA #LGBTQ #LGBTQ2S #autocrat #NBPoli

Let kids be kids:
- who can grow up feeling safe and accepted for who they are.
- Who can look to adults to protect them from physical and emotional harm when necessary.
- Who feel their lives are precious and worth living.
- Who know that human rights are for everyone and see that demonstrated every day.🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

People gathered at Manitoba legislature for a protect trans youth rights rally. There is a large LGBTQIA+ flag in the centre.

Going to do some outside things today (chores) and I will be proudly wearing my grey/white t-shirt that says,

“Queer but not into bright colours”

Because the events of the past week still resonate, and will continue to resonate with me.

#2SLGBTQIA people exist and deserve to have basic human rights and freedoms.

Today, I went to a counter-protest to support the #2SLGBTQIA+ community in #Lethbridge, #Alberta. 🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈 We were counter-protesting the "1MillionMarch4Children". I made a point of dialoging with the protestors. I felt supported by the group of my co-workers from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Lethbridge Research and Development Centre, and by other members of SAGE Clan 🦅 and the FRINGE bicycle gang 🚴🏽who were there, too. At such counter-protests, I have such a sense of community!

The whole idea of protesting against teaching gender theory in schools is deeply fucking hateful and offensive. I can't be at the counter protests today but I am standing in solidarity. Down with anti-trans hate.

That ideology has no place in Canada, or anywhere at all.

Do you know what the sad part is? At one point you're going to push communities like the #LGBTQIA #2SLGBTQIA too much and they will fight back in a way that's never been seen. It's happened before.

I worked the frontline with homeless street youth for more than 5 years. By far the largest demographic were LGBTQ kids who had been forced out of their homes onto the streets by angry, intolerant abusive parents. Many identified as Trans. Too many died young before they found out someone loved them and cared about them.

If you’re not disturbed by the anti-trans / anti #2SLGBTQIA protests happening across Canada today —- frankly, you’re either not paying attention or your privilege is showing.

I say it how it is - I mean what I say, that’s who I am.

I used to counter protest, I used to build movements… but now I’m too disabled to be there.

If you can, please go carry the banner for those of us that can’t. We. Are. Tired.

“Look just under the surface, and it’s also clear that the networks underpinning support for 1MillionMarch4Children bring together conspiracy theorists in Canada who have been organizing against COVID-19 vaccines, against public education and in service of Christian nationalism for years. “The result is a grotesque feat of disinformation and fearmongering…” #2SLGBTQIA #LGBTQ #ConspiracyTheories

There is no room for exclusion in Canada. Trans people and the 2SLGBTQ+ community need your help pushing back against it.
#2SLGBTQIA #SOGI #TransRightsAreHumanRights

Anti-trans protests happened on Sept 20 in almost every major city in Canada. It’s fucking terrifying, to be honest.

Hate doesn’t stop by itself. It has to BE stopped.

You can help in small and big ways: change your user photo to this, explain why to your family and friends, and go support the side of diversity & equality on Sept 20.

Look around your corner of the country and you’ll find the counter-protest. Stand with them.

Teachers’ unions reject Ford’s anti-trans rhetoric

Norfolk County in Ontario is installing a 2nd “decorative crosswalk!” So decorative. I wonder why?

Their press release says their “rainbow crosswalk” was funded by donations, but I’m not sure why people donated?

It says this indicates they are “a community that welcomes everyone,” but I’m not sure who wouldn’t be welcome?

No mention of what the rainbow is there for. No mention of any 2SLGBTQIA+ terms, or even the word “different”. Feels weird.

Note for those who don’t know: trans teens cannot currently have surgery and no-one is advocating for them to have surgery. What the Tories want to ban is puberty blockers and counselling. Puberty blockers are reversible (and anyway detransitioning is incredibly rare).

You can bet that the Tories will roll back even the somewhat skimpy climate policies offered by Trudeau too.

Horrible. Potentially ten years in prison for the people *attending* a wedding.

CBC: More than 60 people are in jail in Nigeria in connection with an alleged gay wedding last week, which is illegal in the country, the police and their lawyer said on Monday.

Trans creatures, keep being you. Never let disrespectful or closed-minded people dictate who you are. You are doing GREAT.

Hello Lovelies,

I'm going to my first ballroom events this week, Pride has finally kicked off here in Montreal and there is so much I want to do.

"Pose" opened a world to me that I wish I had known about in the 80s. Living in the here and now is challenging, to not get lost in what could have been. The truth is, best case scenario in some other timeline teen Lily made it to NYC with her best friends and found herself.

In this timeline it took me 49 years of life before I knew that I am & have always been a woman.

Now at 54, beginning my 5th year of HRT, I am having a moment. If you are a new egg and reading this you have a 1000 worries about what's next.

What's next is change, and choice. Taking control and making our own choices is one of the more subtle realities of this journey.

There are going to be so many moments in your future. In all of them be your authentic self if only for yourself.

I don't know what Montreal Ball culture holds for me, but I love the adventure. I hit a new plateau lately and I can't deny I am turning into a hottie, I love it!

After 38 years I have my high school best friends back in my life. 15 year old Lily learned everything about being a friend from these women. Talking to them every day again, now with the depth that we all want from each other...

These are significant and core friendships, picking up again with the comfort of sisters.

Living in the now doesn't discount the pain and sacrifice that not being myself inflicted. It's made things hurt a little less though.

There is only this moment, as you are reading this now. The past and the future are always illusory. Always at the edges, and forever relegated to your mind.

So, whatever terrible thing that's happening now, some fucking how it will pass, and so will time.

You will arrive at your own 1 of 1000 moments and infinitely many more to come. Where joy and happiness are all you know, I will be very grateful to see you there.

Leading with love, Living with joy

A photo of myself, Lily. I am leaning on a purple wall in a purple short sleeved top, with an orange tank top underneath.

I am wearing a pixie cut red haired wig. I have on purple lipstick. I am wearing my Hunger Games necklace.

The pain of my early transition is visible on my face. HRT is still five months in her future and she doesn't even know it's going to happen.
The glow up is for real lovelies!

I am wearing a purple dress. My hair is swept to the left held in place with a lilac headband. I am wearing cats eye glasses. My eyes are closed and my purple eye shadow is visible. My Hunger Games necklace is hanging inside my dress against my heart.

I look absolutely radiant, who knows what's next.

In my personal life I’m a non-binary ADHDer who dresses like a kid's television host and has fun hair. The enrichment in my enclosure currently includes: holographic/iridescence, maximalism, animals, games, indie horror, my sweet cats, and the Kalimba.

In light of the hate-motivated attack in a gender studies class at U Waterloo this week, I've started a crowdsourced list of legal self-defense tools, classes, workshops, and de-escalation training throughout Canada.

The purpose is to give #Trans and #Queer folks tools to protect themselves legally and to feel safe going out in public, especially to school.

Please share the resource with the #2SLGBTQIA community in #Canada.

Here it is:

#Canada's "first" #Pride protest happened in August, and therefore #Ottawa Pride is in August, but other cities in Canada have their respective Pride protests/parades in June and July. Therefore, we have PRIDE SEASON officially, in Canada.


Happy Pride Month all my brothers, sisters, others and friends! I love all of you, and you are all beautiful creatures deserving of love!

@parkermolloy as a public servant in #Canada, we would often say that #2SLGBTQIA+ people are an equity-deserving group of the public that we serve. That is, trans people are who we serve, if we serve the public. I know Canadian federal law or policies don't affect American politics *at all* but I often think about how things would be different in the USA for trans people if they had The Charter and laws against frivilous, vexatious, or abusive use of the law.

Living in #Saskatchewan #Canada, I've been mostly surrounded by religious, cishet white folks my whole life. Twitter was where I was able to connect with so many ppl who weren't that. I loved it.
