Gender and Sexual Equity Summit

Educators, students and community members and community groups are invited to help create a network of gender and sexual equity activism in Eastern Townships at the first Gender & Sexual Equity Summit taking place Saturday, November 7, 2015 at Bishop’s University.

The day long program aims to bring people who self-identify as LGBTQ+ and their allies together to focus on gender and sexual diversity in the region. Through speakers, workshops, group discussions and decompression activities, organizers hope to build a sustainable inclusive culture and infrastructure to support students and create an Eastern Townships Gender and Sexual Equity Network.

Summit participation is limited to 100 registrants who are invited to ‘pay what you can.’ Registrants are encouraged to pay anywhere between $10 to $40 for themselves and perhaps another attendee, to cover the cost of food. Twenty free spots are available to those who can’t afford the cost.  Participants must register by October 31 at

Summit participants along with the general public, are welcome to attend a free keynote address by d’bi.young anitafrika, internationally celebrated African-Jamaican-Canadian dubpoet and dramatist, at 7:30 pm at Bandeen Hall.
