While immersing ourselves in the sights, sounds, scents and textures of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh and səlilwətaɬ land colonially known as Stanley Park, we will discuss queer ecology and what this radical approach to understanding non-human life can offer us. Guided by non-binary queer Educator Thuja Quickstad, we will look at how notions from a cisheteropatriarchy have limited how we view the lives of and relationships between other species. Structured as informative conversation and educational ecology walk, there will be as much opportunity to connect with each other as there will be to learn. This is a pilot program that we hope will become a series. If you are interested in this approach, please attend, or let us know you are interested in future walks, so we have the interest for on-going walks of this nature for this community!
This an accessible outdoor experience for members of the queer/trans community. The location and character of the experience will be guided by the needs of the folks interested in taking part. Contact Thuja (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss mobility needs including length of time you can walk/roll and if you require access to seating or washrooms during this 1.5 hour program. Even though the program is outdoors, participants are required to wear masks and remain distanced for the duration.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
