LGBTQ Parents as Activists in Canada
Canada is a global leader in LGBTQ parenting equity issues – but we aren’t done. In this presentation, Andy Inkster draws connections to equity struggles based in reproductive justice originated by women of colour in the US.
In a context of global societal homophobia and transphobia, parenting is one of the flashpoints for homophobic repression.
Through intersectional analysis and work, LGBTQ family activists here in Canada can work with LGBTQ parents on a global level - whether in partnership with LGBTQ family activists and advocates globally, or with LGBTQ parents who are newcomers to Canada.
Andy Inkster (Toronto, Canada) is the Health Promoter for the LGBTQ Parenting Network and a trans parent to one child. Andy has been working on community initiatives to support queer and trans parents for over a decade.
