In our first Community Conversation, Tessa Vikander speaks to Brooklyn Fowler and Linnea Strom from the City of Vancouver’s LBGTQ2S+ Advisory Committee. The mandate of the LGBTQ2+ Committee is to advise Council and staff on enhancing access and inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit and queer communities to fully participate in City services and civic life.
The committee is currently working on an anti-hate policy that will guide the city on how to create spaces and events that protect marginalized groups from hate and discrimination.
The conversation also touches on the recent news that the Vancouver Public Library has once again green-lit a talk by Meghan Murphy. A similar decision last year by the library led to Vancouver Pride Society blocking them from the Pride Parade. RationalWiki provides a referenced background on Murphy’s views on trans people.
