Submitted to:

The House of Commons Standing Committee on Health

The House of Commons Standing Committee on Health (HESA) have been holding committee meetings since February 28, 2019 to study LGBTQ2 health in Canada. HESA invites individuals and organizations to submit Briefs on LGBTQ2 health in Canada with the possibility of appearing on the committee to provide a deposition.  Queer Ontario (and its predecessor organization, CLGRO) have a long history of activism and advocacy on the health needs of LGBTQ2 (Queer & Trans) individuals and communities with a focus on the social determinants of health and impacts on the marginalized and the particularly vulnerable.

Queer Ontario completed our submission brief to HESA on May 1, 2019. You can download our submission titled,  “Queer Ontario Brief LGBTQ2 Health in Canada” at the committee’s website here.

Introduced by film director Dr. Nick Mulé

This feature documentary links the principles and tenets of gay liberation in the Stonewall era to today’s queer liberation movements. The interviews, spanning historical and contemporary LGBTQ issues, reveal internal politics, provide a critical analysis of the mainstreaming effects of the LGBT equality movements vs. the progressive, sex-positive views of queer liberation movements, and uncover an internal divide between those who are content with equality and those who continue to fight for liberation.
