At Rise, we honour Two-Spirit and Indigenous LBTQQIA+ Peoples and communities and celebrate the diversity and radiance of their identities, lived experiences and expressions.
This is a day of joyous celebration and merriment as we will continue to advocate for Two-Spirit and Indigenous LGBTQQIA+ visibility, spaces, and achievements.
Today marks Two-Spirited and Indigenous LGBTQQIA+ Celebration and Awareness Day – a day to recognize and celebrate Two-Spirit and LGBTQQIA+ Peoples and communities around the world. Intentionally aligning with the spring Equinox, this day represents change and transformation, a space Two-Spirited Peoples inhabit. To further explore topics and discussions surrounding Two-Spirited and Indigenous LGBTQQIA+ Peoples, we highly encourage you to check out the Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC) section on Indigenous and Two-Spirit Health.
