Dalia Tourki and Kama La Mackerel | On Being Trans and Visible


Thursday, March 08, 2018
16:00 to 17:30

From articles on newspapers to television documentaries, trans people are everywhere. This increasing representation of trans people in the media, however, is not necessarily or always positive. Based on their experiences with the media, Dalia Tourki and Kama La Mackerel will speak about the shortcomings and the less glamorous side of being trans and visible. Kama  La Mackerel is a tio’tia:ke/Montreal-based performer, writer, story-teller, arts facilitator and multi-disciplinary artist. Kama is also co-founder of Qouleur and founder of Gender (Blender). Dalia Tourki co-organized the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Trans March and helped to intensify advocacy around issues pertaining to trans migrants in Quebec. She is also a member of the Centre for Gender Advocacy as their new trans rights advocate and public educator. Sponsored by The Open Door Network.
