Ottawa March for Trans Rights 2023
August 25 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Anti-trans hate is on the rise. We are asking trans and gender diverse folks, the people who love and support them, and other allies to join us in this year’s March for Trans Rights!
Organized by a group of local trans and gender diverse people, our goal is to show the Ottawa Trans community that they’re not alone!
Bring your energy, your signs, and your families!
We are asking folks to please mask. Masks will be made available at the march if you cannot bring one. Although the event is outside, we will be gathered in large numbers and masking will greatly reduce the risk for our immuno-compromised community members.
The area in front of the stage will be kept clear of crowds for those who are seated.
We will also have chairs on site for those that need them.
If we missed something or you have a specific accessibility question, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have secured sign language interpretation in ASL. We are looking for an interpreter in LSQ. If you know someone who is an interpreter, please email: email@example.com
Folks with mobility aids are encouraged to join for the march and will be prioritized! Individuals using mobility aids or with other access needs will be asked to lead the march, setting the pace for everyone! No one will be left behind.

SAFETY AND EXPECTATIONS
We want this to be a fun, positive, and family-friendly gathering, so bring your energy, your signs, and your kids, family and friends!!
Bring your passion, rage, joy, and sadness. All are welcome. But please be mindful of others, their experiences, and the space you take up.
With the rising anti-trans hate, we can oftentimes feel isolated and alone. This March is a chance to combat those feelings and lean into community.
Montreal had their Trans March earlier in August and it was attended by upwards of 5000 people. We expect this March to be just as spectacular!
If there are folks who are protesting the Trans March, we ask that you do not engage with them, and allow our marshalls and volunteers to create a barrier between us and them. We protect our own.
