Red Rising Magazine Issue 7: Two Spirit is is about uplifting Two-Spirit voices and their creative expression to spark dialogue on why we need to decolonize the way we value gender and sexuality within our communities.Two Spirited people are the most marginalized in our communities due to the ongoing colonialism and assimilation that has resulted in gender and sexual-based violence, systemic oppression, and current suicide crisis on-reserve. Red Rising Collective members acknowledge the beauty, value and resistance of our two-spirited relatives, as they are impacted in many ways by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. As we embark on our collective journey of decolonization, we must honour Two-Spirited people for all their gifts Creator has given them.
Please join us for this public event in partnership with the Call 2 Conversation conference on Saturday October 21st, 2017 to honour Indigenous LGBTQ Two-Spirit relatives within our community and across Turtle Island.
We will hear from amazing speakers including Albert Mcleod, Joshua Whitehead and talented Indigenous artist Dayna Danger, who is also featured within the WAG's new collection INSURGENCE RESURGENCE curated by Jaimie Issac and Julie Nagam.
As per all our event launches, we respectfully request a suggested $10 entry that includes a copy of Issue 7: Two Spirit Magazine. T-shirts will also be available for purchase with various colours and sizes for $20. We will never turn away Indigenous youth who cannot pay the suggested price. All proceeds go towards keeping Red Rising Magazine going, as we are all volunteer-run and financially supported by community members who make donations and purchases of magazines and merchandise.
