Capture the Flag! June 22nd 7PM!

Hey Folks! 

The UR Pride event “Fun and Games” was such a hit during Queen City Pride that we are planning another game of Capture the Flag at Les Sherman Park (Princess and 15th). We will be meeting in the open field behind the Neil Balkwill Centre this Sunday at 7:00 p.m. UR Pride will be providing the flags, but we‘re asking participants to bring both a black and white t-shirt to act as jerseys. If you don’t have a black or white t-shirt, let us know and we’ll bring extras. Other than that, you’re responsible for bringing any other items you think you may need: water, running shoes, sunscreen, bug spray. etc.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Time 4 Rights

1 2 3 5 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These folks say it’s #time4rights in Saskatchewan!

Time 4 Rights is a campaign that promotes the inclusion of “gender identity” and “gender expression” in the Saskatchewan Human Rights code.

Time4Rights is a social media campaign started by the Gender Equality Society of Saskatchewan. GESS advocates for the rights of transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, and two-spirit people in the province of Saskatchewan.

We are asking the Government of Saskatchewan to provide explicit human rights protection by including the terms “gender identity,” and “gender expression” to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code as categories of discrimination. You can support our efforts by uploading a Selfie of you supporting trans* rights. Don’t forget, our theme is #time4rights, so be creative with your pictures, add clocks, hourglasses, or anything by which you interpret Time. Upload your Selfie here, or find us at:

https://www.facebook.com/Time4Rights

@time4rights @GordWyant @PremierBradWall @[yourMLA] #Time4Rights #TransRights #[yourTownName] #Saskatchewan #SkPoli

We also have a letter writing campaign. If you are not the type for self portraits, try writing a letter to Premier Brad Wall, Justice Minister Gordon Wyant, or your MLA asking for their support of trans* rights in Saskatchewan. Or if you are really ambitious, set up a letter writing event in your community.

You can find more information at www.Time4Rights.ca or by emailing us at time4rights@gmail.com
