Go_rogue_series
The new Ontario government has decided that our province's young people don't need to learn essential information on safer sex, consent, gender identity, residential schools and truth and reconciliation, and more.

We disagree.

speqtrum has teamed up with SACHA, The Aids Network, YWCA Hamilton, and North Hamilton Community Health Centre to bring YOU the information that your school WON'T

Rogue workshops are open to ALL youth 16-29*.

Accessibility:

Gendered washrooms will be converted to all gender in the Senior's Centre, and there are single non-gendered accessible washrooms on the first floor and basement of the YWCA.

The space is physically accessible. Fidget toys available. Please let us know if you have any access needs.

*We won't be carding folks at the door.

August 8th - Consent

The new changes to sex education in Ontario makes it so youth are not going to be taught about gender identity, same sex marriage, consent, online violence, and much more.

This SACHA workshop for youth aged 16-29* will help participants get the facts about consent, sexual assault, and bystander intervention.

Let us know you’re coming by filling out this form - https://consent.brownpapertickets.com/

August 15th - Safer Sex

Let's talk about (Queer Inclusive Safer) Sex!

Join Eno and Eddy from The Aids Network to talk about all kinds of sex, safety, and sexuality as part of our Rogue Workshop Series.

 

August 22nd - Truth and Reconcilitation

Learn the TRUTH about Canadian residential schools and reconciliation.

Laura Kooji, local two-spirit activist, will bring some real talk on what Truth and Reconciliation means, and how we, as young people, can participate in that process.

August 29th - Youth Action Planning

Calling all queer, trans, and two-spirit youth, and our allies to join us in planning for ACTION to make sure this generation and generations to come receive clear and essential education on gender, sexuality, and consent.

The first hour will be led by Mela from NHCHC, who will compare and contrast the 2015 Health and Physical Education Curriculum with the ancient 1998 curriculum that will be reinstated this fall.

The second hour, facilitated by Jyss from speqtrum, will focus on developing a plan of action to ensure our peers receive the education they need and deserve.
