BLACK TRANS & QUEER LIVES MATTER

Background

A Black Trans Man was shot and killed by a Tallahassee police officer a few days ago. Montreal North, the worst Covid hotspot in Canada is a predominantly Black neighbourhood. Cops, Covid-19, Systemic Racism & Transphobia Kill. And we're going to make sure that BLACK TRANS & QUEER LIVES MATTER.

Tony McDade, a Black Trans Man was shot and killed by a Tallahassee police officer Wednesday, May 27. Gay Black musician & drag queen Nashom Wooden died in NYC of complications related to COVID-19 on March 23. What's the link between police violence and COVID-19? Is the kind of structural racism that turns places like Mtl Nord into a COVID-19 hotspot related to other forms of anti-Blackness? How does anti-Blackness super-charge homophobia & transphobia? Come listen to the voices of the families of vicitims of police killings. Come listen to a young Trans Man racially profiled, beaten & assaulted by our brave SPVM, Come listen to our artists and poets. Come meditate with us. Come pray with us. Come get ready to fight for what's right.

LA VIE DES NOIRS TRANS ET QUEER EST IMPORTANTE

Tony McDade, un transsexuel noir, a été abattu par un policier de Tallahassee mercredi 27 mai. Le musicien noir gay et drag queen Nashom Wooden est mort à New York des suites de complications liées à COVID-19 le 23 mars. Quel est le lien entre la violence policière et COVID-19 ? Le type de racisme structurel qui transforme des endroits comme Mtl Nord en un point chaud de COVID-19 est-il lié à d'autres formes d'anti-Noirs ? Comment l'anti-noir surcharge-t-il l'homophobie et la transphobie ? Venez écouter les voix des familles des victimes des meurtres de la police. Venez écouter un jeune transsexuel profilé racialement, battu et agressé par notre courageux SPVM, Venez écouter nos artistes et poètes. Venez méditer avec nous. Venez prier avec nous. Venez vous préparer à vous battre.
