Standing Together Against Anti-Trans and Anti-2SLGBTQIA+ Hate in the Central Okanagan and British Columbia:
A Joint Statement
Over the past year, trans and broader 2SLGBTQIA+ communities in the Central Okanagan have noted a deeply concerning trend: increased mobilizations by anti-trans and anti-2SLGBTQIA+ actors. This has affected our ability to carry out events safely, free from harassment and abuse. It has also led to an atmosphere of fear and intimidation for trans and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities looking to organize and hold community events.
We think it is crucial to come together now and stand as a community against this wave of hatred. We also believe it is important to educate the public and our political representatives so that they may stand with us as allies.
