Halifax Pride is geared up for another year of rainbow-filled celebrating, announcing their full lineup for the 10-day fest. Here, we're rounding up the events we're marking on our calendars—but full event listings are available here.
Kate Bornstein presents Trans, Just for the Fun of It!
A nonbinary trans author, activist and performance artist, New York-based Kate Bernstein wants to widen the focus on talks about transgendered people. While there are very real difficulties not to be glossed over, Bornstien's lecture is meant to remind us of the "physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual joy that can be had by creating and living one's gender mindfully."
