Joyful Giving Cocktail Fundraiser at Steelworkers' Toronto Area Council, 25 Cecil St., Toronto
The funds raised go to the Emergency Financial Assistance Fund.  The Emergency Financial Assistance Fund’s sole purpose is to support clients who are in financial hardship, mainly newcomers to Canada.  They assist with utility bills, treatment costs, needed transportation, immigration expenses and other costs that are hard to cover.  Many unexpected challenges arise at the most inconvenient times; a mother is running out of groceries and won't be paid until next month; an LGBTQ refugee claimant, unprepared for the cruel winter who needs winter gear; a family in need of assistance with first and last month’s rent to secure a home. All of the proceeds from Black CAP’s Joyful Giving fundraising efforts are a resource for individuals in these situations and more, as they develop their lives in Canada.

Art forms continue to grow and evolve after being passed from generation to generation through the oral tradition. This concert will dig deeper into our Carnival traditions, featuring some obscured performance traditions as well as goes into ideas of the dialogue between mas and society with respect to social commentary as well as history.

The Legendary Gordon Lightfoot at Centre In The Square, 101 Queen St. N., Kitchener
A national treasure, Gordon Lightfoot is beloved by music fans around the world. Born November 17, 1938 in Orillia, Ontario Gordon Lightfoot studied at Los Angeles' Westlake College of Music. He returned to Canada in the early 1960s and began performing at the "Riverboat" in Toronto and in coffee houses throughout Canada and the United States. In 1966, his debut album Lightfoot! was released. Tracks such as For Lovin' Me, Early Morning Rain, Steel Rail Blues and Ribbon of Darkness brought him international recognition as a songwriter. As a result, cover versions of his songs were recorded by artists such as Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Barbara Streisand, Johnny Cash, and countless others. In 1971 Gordon earned his first Top Ten hit when If You Could Read My Mind became an international sensation. In 1974, his classic single, Sundown, went to No.1 on the American charts, followed two years later by The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, inspired by a Newsweek magazine article; it reached No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard charts. In 2004, he released his 20th album Harmony, and his iconic Massey Hall residencies are celebrated with the release of his most recent album Massey Hall Moments - All Live, a collection of live recordings of the finest Massey Hall performances, recorded between 1998 and 2001.

Beyond Trans: Does Gender Matter? at Rotman School of Management, U of T, 105 St. George St., Toronto
Beyond Trans pushes the conversation on gender identity to its limits: questioning the need for gender categories in the first place. Whether on birth certificates or college admissions applications or on bathroom doors, why do we need to mark people and places with sex categories? Do they serve a real purpose or are these places and forms just mechanisms of exclusion? Heath Fogg Davis offers an impassioned call to rethink the usefulness of dividing the world into not just Male and Female categories but even additional categories of Transgender and gender fluid. Davis, himself a transgender man, explores the underlying gender-enforcing policies and customs in American life that have led to transgender bathroom bills, college admissions controversies, and more, arguing that it is necessary for our society to take real steps to challenge the assumption that gender matters. He examines four areas where we need to re-think our sex-classification systems: sex-marked identity documents such as birth certificates, driver’s licenses and passports; sex-segregated public restrooms; single-sex colleges; and sex-segregated sports. COST: $31.47 plus HST per person (includes 1 signed hardcover copy of "Beyond Trans" and 1 seat for the book talk)
