Calling all Queer Women in Ottawa and Gatineau! On April 14th we will be hosting No More Apologies Ottawa!
No More Apologies Ottawa is a FREE conference to discuss romance, sexual health and social exclusion in Queer Women’s Communities.
The Conference has been inspired by the “No More Apologies: Queer Trans and Cis Women Coming/Cumming Together!” conference, first organized in Toronto, Ontario by a dedicated group of activists. This movement has been taken up in Ottawa by PTS, Planned Parenthood Ottawa and a group of dedicated queer women’s activists.
From the original event:
“Social exclusion negatively impacts trans queer women’s sexual, emotional, and psychological health; meanwhile by excluding trans women from our communities, cis queer women are missing out on a multitude of sexy, wonderful women to love, fuck, and connect with.
Join us for this long overdue conversation and call-to-action about how to transform our talk about trans inclusion into practice.”

-Non-binary folks if they feel that they fit within the definition of queer woman may come, as we recognize the drawbacks of having a trans/cis binary.
