VICTORIA PRIDE FESTIVAL

Following the parade, come visit our table at the Pride Festival in MacDonald Park.  Come put your hands on some of the history that sparked the revolution! Original historical material from the world's largest Transgender Archives will be available for you to pick up and look at.

Meet the Chair in Transgender Studies team, and chat with us about the 10 Year Anniversary of the Transgender Archives and our exciting projects. 

 

A BUTTON-SIZED PIECE OF HISTORY

Griffin Nesbitt, community member and TransChair supporter, designed a couple of unique (and super cute) buttons to celebrate Victoria Pride 2022!  They are a button-sized piece of history for you to have, and which will be preserved in the Transgender Archives for future generations. 

Come by our table and pick up your button-sized piece of history, while supplies last!
