Gender Markers and ID Documents: Community Consultation

The Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and South House are partnering to hold a community consultation session about gender markers on ID documents. Have you encountered obstacles or challenges in changing your gender marker on your Nova Scotia ID? The Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and South House invite people who identify as trans, intersex, non-binary, two-spirit, or other diverse gender identities and gender expressions to participate in a facilitated conversation about gender and provincial ID documents. The aim of this consultation is to increase understanding and foster communication between communities and government on this issue. We would love to hear your stories, your perspectives, and your concerns.

When: November 23, 2017. 6:30pm-8:00pm.

Where: South House Sexual and Gender Resource Centre. 1443 Seymour Street. Halifax.

South House is an accessible space, with an all gender washroom. Catering will be provided. Please RSVP by November 9 to Allison.Smith@novascotia.ca. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to provide comments, please let us know.
