UPCOMING EVENT: Trans* Pride Town Hall
The Third Trans* Pride Town Hall will be held on Saturday 28 February 2015 at The Toronto Public Library – Parliament Branch. This meeting will be for information and community discussion. Topics on the agenda include:
- Trans* Pride March route - We're getting close to city's deadline for a final decision on route. Trans* Pride Team is suggesting that the community march the long route again, from Bloor, down Yonge to Dundas. This idea was well-received by attendees at the previous meeting... Time is running short for additional community input, deadline to finalize plans with City of Toronto (around March 1). We need to receive all community feedback ASAP for discussion at this meeting.
- Free Concert: Trans* Artists Musical Showcase at Yonge-Dundas Square - Was thought to be a one-time event for WorldPride, but it was wildly successful so it's set to go forward again this year--if the community supports the idea. Guests at the previous town hall suggested musical artists and offered new ideas into organization of the seating area. This discussion may continue at the next Town Hall.
- Trans* Space, and other programming – Announcing a new Team Member, and open call seeking more volunteers for team positions.
- Open discussion - Bring your thoughts, ideas, questions or concerns! We will answer you and gladly take your assistance and suggestions to make Trans* Pride 2015 the best one ever.

ABOUT TRANS* PRIDE
Trans* Pride is a volunteer team working within Pride Toronto whose goal is to promote trans* education and awareness, within Pride Toronto events and beyond. Trans* Pride represents any person within the trans* spectrum, which refers to anyone whose gender identities do not match the bodies they were born with.
Pride Toronto’s trans* community spaces help promote trans positive grass-roots programs, as well as educational outreach activities to increase awareness on trans* related topics.
The Trans* Pride Rally, Trans* Pride March and Trans* Space are currently organized by a team of dedicated trans* volunteers from the trans* communities in Toronto and is greatly supported by cisgender allies. If you would like to be part of the team either as an organizer or an ally please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .

It includes, but is not limited to, those community members who identify as transgender, transsexual, Intersex, third gender, two-spirit, genderqueer, genderfluid, gender independent, transvestite, non-binary,and bigender.
