Two-Spirit People: Then and Now – Sex, Gender and Sexuality in Historical and Contemporary America
Event hosted by The Pride Collective UBC
January 8, 7pm
Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Room 261
University of British Columbia
The Pride Collective UBC invites you to a Two-Spirit Presentation and Q&A with Harlan Pruden (First Nations Cree), who lives in NYC, is a co-founder of the NorthEast Two-Spirit Society and a recent appointee by President Obama to the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. Harlan will examine the rich history of the Two-Spirit people and share how this community is working to restore health, wellness and balance to our people.
This event is wheelchair accessible from the main door of Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. There are gender-neutral bathrooms on the first floor, one floor below this event. We ask people to comply with our scent-reduction policy and to please not wear fragrances or scented products to this event.
This event is taking place on the unceded and stolen territory of the xʷməθkʷəyəm (Musqueam) people. As we have conversations surrounding the histories and communities of Two-Spirit people, we need to be mindful how this work is happening on stolen land and how this relates to histories and current realities of colonial violence.
