Special Virtual Event: Two-Spirit Reconciliation

Date: Thursday December 16, 2021

Time: 10 AM – 1:30 PM Pacific time


We are pleased to announce a West Coast learning and discussion virtual event with Cree Two-Spirit community organizer, researcher and educator Harlan Pruden. This two-part event will situate Two-Spirit people in Indigenous and colonial histories, and how we can work towards decolonizing Two-Spirit realities today.

We will open up the Zoom room at 9:55 so people can chat and connect. The first session starts at 10 AM Pacific time. 


10 – 11:30 AM
The first session, Gender, Sexuality and Two-Spirit Lives, will use a Two-Spirit perspective to explore individual, sexual, social, and community interconnectedness.


Break – we will keep the event room open and welcome participants to chat with one another.


12 – 1:30 PM
The second session, Pivoting Two-Spirit Sexual Health Research to Action, will share data featuring Two-Spirit voices on sexual health, identities, and service uptake. Discussion will include approaches for optimizing your services to support Two-Spirit and Indigenous GBMSM in rural and urban settings.


Suggested Participants

All are welcome, and we suggest this might be of particular interest to:

  • frontline workers
  • program coordinators and managers
  • knowledge translation staff and educators
  • community allies and supporters
