Beginning at McNabb Park, 328 James Street
THE OTTAWA TRANS MARCH IS ORGANIZED BY AND FOR THE TRANS, TWO SPIRIT, GENDER DIVERSE COMMUNITIES NOT BY ANY ORGANIZATION. Join in as lovely humans, loved ones and families march in Ottawa, on unsurendered and unceded Algonquin territory, to recognize trans and gender non-conforming people as often erased members of the LGBTTQIA community. Allies welcome, though only non-cisgender folks are to take leadership roles.
Join us as we march in Ottawa, on unsurendered and unceded Algonquin territory, to recognize trans and gender non-conforming people as often erased members of the LGBTTQIA community. Allies, unless marching with the express wish for support from a particular person, please support from the sidelines and cheer on.
The rally point will be at McNabb Park, due to the McNabb Community Centre being host to the memorial mural of trans women of colour, created by Kalkidan Assefa.
From McNabb Park, the march will travel East on Gladstone, turning Left on Bank, and finally right on Somerset W, where it will end at the site of the Ottawa Black Diaspora – Coalition event, Colour the streets – Nos rue, en couleur.
Please note: As a matter of personal preference for safety from members of the trans community, the organizing group has opted to not include or notify police of this event. In the event that police arrive to discuss any part of the march, march marshals and/or organizers will speak with them, minimizing their contact with marchers as much as possible.
