When The Bullying Ends: Transgender Awareness Month
November is Transgender Awareness Month with the International Day of Remembrance happening on Sunday November 20, a day to remember those we’ve lost to violence. This month is also an opportunity to honour our local heroes whose willingness to continue the fight is as inspiring as it is vital to our communities success, both here in Toronto and around the world.
This special online viewing of the documentary “…When The Bullying Ends” is a fifteen minute journey into the life of Enza Anderson, a Toronto trans woman who continues to make international headlines for her work as an anti-bullying activist.
You can view this video anytime until midnight Wednesday November 30th. After this it will be available for screenings or educational viewings through the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre. Honourable mentions at the 2016 Kolkata film festival, India.
