NWAC Condemns Ontario Governments Decision to Debate Existence of Gender Spectrum

Ottawa, ON – On November 20, 2018, NWAC remembers and honours the Two-Spirit, Trans, and non-binary Indigenous people victimized and killed by transphobic and racial violence. In this spirit, we condemn the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party’s recent resolution to the existence of the gender spectrum. These people are loved, valued, and their existence and worth not being voted on or debated.

Different forms of violence are too common in the lives of Indigenous Two-Spirit and LGBTQ + individuals. Marginalization and Systemic Discrimination and Discrimination. Indigenous people who are also affected by barriers to accessing basic services such as healthcare, housing, and employment. This is particularly true for Indigenous youth.

Trans, Two-Spirit, and non-binary Indigenous folk have demonstrated incredible strength and resilience. They are leaders, healers, and crucial parts of our communities. It is essential they can safely access services, participate in ceremony, and are present at decision-making tables impacting their lives, not erased.
