About this Event

Activisions: Trans Histories and Activism, 1970s-2010s

ActiVisions: Trans Histories and Activism, 1970s-2010s is an exhibition, public program, and walking tour concerning the intersectional history of Greater Toronto Area (GTA) trans people from the 1970s-2010s. ActiVisions will focus on the history of trans activism and resilience using collections from The ArQuives to help tell this history. The exhibition will highlight some of the important Trans records from The ArQuives’s collection, while the public roundtable will feature activists from Toronto. The walking tour will focus on Trans stories and history with a focus on both material and intangible heritage.

Join us for the opening reception and roundtable where GTA activists will explore the histories, experiences, and other activists and people who have moved the GTA trans community forward, even when some tried to set them back.
