Event description

Description

For many generations, the "outdoors" has been associated with tall rugged blonde men with perfect bodies and teeth.

But new movements in North America, including #BrownPeopleCamping and podcasts such as She Explores are opening up outdoor space to those whose voices have long been ignored: women, people of colour, queer and trans and other people.

At the same time, Indigenous voices and long-held views of the outdoors are giving subtle and refreshing complexities to our relationship to the outdoors.

With Somali-American writer and outdoors enthusiast, Rahawa Haile, Robert Moor, author of On Trails, and writer and journalist, Paul Seesequasis.

This event is part of the new #OnCivilSociety series at the TPL.

This event is also part of TPL's Canada 150 special program series which, since September 2017, has given us the opportunity to look at certain key issues that separate and connect the US and Canada in our shared histories.
