Had a great time trekking out to Kanata and meeting with AY Jackson’s Rainbow Alliance. Not only did I get acquainted with all the fabulous folks that are part of the club, but I got to hold their mascot, the sparkly purple Charlie the Unicorn. Since I was only there for their brief lunch period, I covered some gender diversity and trans 101 terms as well as basic guidelines on how to respect a trans person. It was a welcoming and inspiring time. Thanks to Ms. Bendell and all the folks at the Rainbow Club!
