This event is in collaboration with IBM, the FTQ and the Milk Foundation.

The conference on LGBTTIQA2S Lives: Our Struggles, Our Victories, Our Challenges will be an opportunity to assess the state of LGBTTIQA2S rights in Canada. The conference’s main objective is to bring together community and cultural partners, university researchers, representatives of trade and labor unions as well as government representatives for an innovative and open discussion of important issues.

The conference will facilitate discussion, networking and learning about what has been done here in Québec and elsewhere in Canada to position ourselves to face the issues to come. In order to accurately raise the issues that most concern Canadian LGBTTIQA2S communities from sea to sea, these themes will be examined through a variety of cultural and identity-based perspectives. In fact, the particular realities faced by women, ethno-cultural communities, Indigenous peoples communities, trans persons and non-binary persons will be put forward in an effort to reflect the diversity of the rainbow flag itself: different cultures, gender identities and sexual orientations.

Over the course of three days, from August 15 to 17, 2017, La Plaza Reception Halls will host the conference.
