Trans Resilience and Well-Being: What Can We Do? at Metropolitan Community Church, 115 Simpson Ave., Toronto
This session occurs just a few days prior to International Trans Day of Remembrance which commemorates the trans lives shorted by brutal violence, directly and indirectly, resulting in shortened life expectancy, the ongoing struggle of grief, depression, suicidality, homelessness, poor housing, lack of employment, lack of health care access, social exclusion and stigma for trans and non-binary people in Toronto and beyond around the world. In addition to acknowledging this brutal violence and loss of life, facilitators will identify strengths within trans and non-binary communities and strategies to address the conditions that threaten trans and non-binary lives and well-being. The discussion will be opened by TREAT (Trans Resource Educational Advocacy Team) at MCCT followed by a brief presentation by local organizations including the Toronto Trans Coalition Project. You will then break out into small groups for discussion with a focus on both understanding and action. How can you be allies and advocates for trans lives? What would make MCCT a more trans-positive and gender-diverse space? What more can MCCT be doing, locally and globally? Cost: $10 or PWYC

Unholy at Buddies In Bad Times Theatre, 12 Alexander St., Toronto
November 23 to December 10 After a sold out, extended run in our 2016-17 season, Nightwood Theatre is proud to present an exclusive return engagement of Diane Flacks' Dora award-nominated Unholy, directed by Kelly Thornton!  Inspired by the YouTube debates of Christopher Hitchens, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and other pundits, Unholy sets up a similar conceit, where four female panellists face off in a wild, whip-smart public debate about religion and misogyny, posing the loaded question “Should women abandon religion?” With opinions flying from a progressive Muslim lawyer, an Orthodox Jewish spiritual leader, an excommunicated nun and a lesbian atheist pundit, Unholy delivers a hilarious, no-holds-barred look at contemporary women in organized religion.

Micah Barnes at Market Hall Performing Arts Centre, 140 Charlotte St., Peterborough
Having cut his teeth in the cabarets and jazz clubs of Toronto while still a teenager Micah became a well loved singer songwriter on the Queen Street scene before joining The Nylons and touring the world. Recording with the A Capella Pop act brought Micah into the global music scene and landed him in Venice Beach, California where he launched a solo career touring the U.S.which led to his #1 international club hit "Welcome To My Head" and coverage in Rolling Stone Magazine as "an Indie artist to watch". Returning to the jazz oriented songwriting of his earlier years has resulted in a series of critically acclaimed solo recordings including his most recent "Domesticated", which saw Micah returning to tour across Canada solo and with his trio. Micah's new collection "New York Stories" pays homage to the rich musical history of the Big Apple with songs that describe a long distance romance using the rhythms of the Cotton Club, the Brill Building, The Apollo Theatre and classic Broadway. The recordings are stripped down in classic jazz style with Micah at the piano performing live off the floor with his trio featuring Daniel Barnes on drums and Russ Boswell on bass. On this recording The Micah Barnes Trio is joined by special guest Michael Shand on keys and features a duet with the legendary Jackie Richardson. The results are an assured collection of deeply personal and sophisticated songs that remind us that the deepest of musical traditions are always contemporary. GENERAL ADMISSION - $28 incl fees
