Affiliated with the Pride Centre, SAMRU’s Relationships, Identity and Sex programming aims to inform students on healthy relationships and sexual and reproductive health, and create a safer space on campus in which students can explore gender and sexual identity.
On Tuesday, November 20th, the Pride Centre will be honouring the lives of transgender and two-spirit individuals who were lost this past year to transphobic violence.
Similar to previous years, the event will be broken up into three parts: the opening ceremony, the walk, and the main ceremony with memorial. The event will begin at the Iniskim Centre (T110) and attendees will be guided through a smudge and prayer. Participants will then join in a guided walk through campus that will end in the 2nd floor lounge of Wyckham House.
This will be a CLOSED Mount Royal event. We ask that external media respect this MRU community-focused ceremony and instead attend the Calgary-wide event. MRU Internal media are welcome to attend. Names will not be said aloud this year but will be set up in the 2nd Floor Gallery for individual perusal and reflection.
For further inquiries regarding this event, please contact Eddy Robinson (they/them) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-440-6409.
