LGBTQ+ Awareness Week 2015This week is gender and sexual diversity awareness week at Humber College.

North and Lakeshore campuses are holding multiple events throughout the week to bring awareness to students.

The events, organized by the Gender and Sexual Diversity Committee (GSDC), include a ‘genderbread’ cookie sale, a couple of documentary screenings, workshops and the unveiling of the safe washroom campaign poster.

This year, the GSDC celebrated the week by shining a light on transgender rights to bring awareness to the struggles, discrimination and harassment that many trans people face every day.

The documentary screening held at the Lakeshore campus on Thursday was of the CBC Doc Zone documentary ‘Transforming Gender‘.
