On November 25, 2013, Jer’s Vision was please to be invited to StandOUT!, the 3rd annual Manitoba GSA conference in Winnipeg. The Jer’s Vision team was there along with hundred of students from throughout Manitoba and northwestern Ontario for an exciting day of knowledge and community.
Canadian transgender musician, author, and filmmaker Rae Spoon, notable for their album and film My Prairie Home, was the amazing keynote speaker for the event.
The students had the chance to attend a variety of youth-focused workshops aimed at making GSAs in schools the most informed and resourceful that they can be. Jer’s Vision had the chance to host one of these workshops and share not only their personal stories but also all the things they had learned about GSAs from visiting schools and educating the youth.
