"Other Kingston Project"

The Department of Gender Studies co-sponsors this project with Four Directions Aboriginal Student Center ( research project exists to develop academic and non-academic research and education projects that uncover and communicate the significance of the “other” Kingston. Among the many stories that portray Kingston, there are many “others” who have been left out of predominant narratives. The Other Kingston Project attends to people and experiences that may be marginalized or silenced by stories that focus on whiteness, colonialism, European heritage, class privilege, or heteronormativity. Recognizing that stories about tradition in Kingston or at Queen’s are not of the past but are created today, we seek to participate in re-telling such stories by drawing upon our grounding within anti-colonial, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-homo / transphobic methods of research. 2015 Co-Chairs are Jacqueline Davies, Margaret Little and Janice Hill.

TransFamily Kingston:

TransFamily Kingston is a group of transgender individuals and their family members and supporters in Kingston, Ontario. We have found that it can be very helpful to connect with other people who are on the same journey, either as a transgender person, or as a parent, sibling, spouse, child or friend of a trans person. This is not a professionally-run support group. It is a grassroots social network that seeks primarily to combat the loneliness and isolation often felt by trans people and those journeying with them.
