  • Transitioning in the pandemic

    Last week on Transgender Day of Visibility, Statistics Canada posted the 2021 census data on trans and non-binary identities to Twitter. Ironically, since the census is completed by one person of the household – for families, usually a parent – this doesn’t account for all the trans and non-binary people whose gender identity was miscategorized, either because they aren’t out or because their gender identity isn’t respected.

  • PROFile: Teaching through therapy

    Mary-Jo Bolton approaches teaching in a way that incorporates her therapist background.

  • Barriers to choice

    On Oct. 2, 2021, a crowd gathered outside the Manitoba Legislative Building in solidarity with Texans impacted by a recent United States Supreme Court decision banning abortions after six weeks. This group, led by the Women’s March Winnipeg chapter, reminded Manitobans that reproductive justice in the province has a long way to go.
