Top Left Toronto

Ipseity Showcase exploring identity promotional card graphic

Toronto, Ontario: Top Left supports the local community through the Students Commission's Central Hub in Downtown Toronto. Project participants come from the suburban areas: Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough as well as a few downtown youth. Like Toronto, most project participants identify from a variety of different cultures and from across the gender spectrum. Project participants have been focused on unpacking the gender box and gender constraints as well as unpacking trans-phobia and homo-phobia. The Toronto project launched at the Top Left Youth Conference in December 2013. Since then project participants have hosted another youth conference, a youth retreat and at least 12 different workshops in local schools focused on unpacking gender norms and expectations. Please see the attached workshop description.
