As usual, the Osgoode Feminist Collective is up to awesome things. Here are two events not to miss next week!
‘Ackee & Saltfish’ is a short film, directed and written by Cecile Emeke, starring Michelle Tiwo as Olivia, and Vanessa Babirye as Rachel. The film is described as “connecting the scattered stories of the black diaspora”, and looks at gentrification in London through the conversations of two best friends.
‘Strolling’ is a short documentary film series also created by Cecile Emeke, where we take a stroll with people in various cities and countries around the world, having refreshingly raw and honest conversations about various issues at the forefront of their society. The film touches on everything from feminism, sexuality, gender, race and politics to philosophy, art, history, capitalism, war and poverty… and everything else you can think of.

Join OUTLaws and Osgoode’s Feminist Collective for a conversation with the inspiring trans rights activist Rachel Lauren Clark. Rachel grew up in upstate New York, and was part of the marine corps for eight years. Leaving the military at the age of 25, Rachel eventually moved to Toronto in 2003, where she was working in information technology. In 2013, Rachel started living openly as a trans woman. She is now heavily involved in the LGBTQ community, serving on the board of Pride Toronto.
