With the participation of the Government of Canada, the 80-minute historical, retrospective film “Sex, Sin & 69” was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of partial decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada. “Sex, Sin & 69” was produced and directed by SandBay Entertainment. A complementary photo exhibit was also created to highlight themes of social justice through action, building queer community, identity & politics, and sex & gender freedom. The exhibit featured photography, memorabilia, writing from individuals as well as publications that were submitted by activists, artists, community meembers, and others have or are currently working to achieve 2SLGBTQI rights in Canada.
Egale National 2SLGBTQI Research Hub
WAGE is supporting much needed research to fill the many gaps for the 2SLGBTQI community. With this support, Egale will be looking at the role of gender bias in trans employment, forming a research hub for 2SLGBTQI research to be accessible, as well as establishing a national academic advisory council who will work with Egale to continue to identify and fill research gaps.
Through funding support from Global Affairs Canada’s Peace and Stabilization Operations Program, Egale in collaboration with a community partner LGBT Association LIGA and Toronto Police Service will implement a national police training program fostering more LGBTQI inclusive law enforcement in Ukraine. Within the framework of the project, it is planned to deliver training sessions to police officers in six Ukranian cities, organize a study tour to Canada for Ukrainian police officers, and publish a bilingual (English/Ukranian) LGBTQI handbook for the Ukranian national police.
