Unruly Bodies

  • The Garrison 1197 Dundas Street West Toronto, ON, M6J 1X3 Canada (map)

“All of us live in unruly bodies that we’re all trying to take care of as best we can." —Roxane Gay


Another unique event brought to you by With/out Pretend! Speakers will share a story about their relationship with a body that refuses to act “as it should.” In a world that works so hard to control, discipline, and punish the bodies of women, and especially trans women, femmes, BIPOC women, non-binary folks, and sick and disabled women, how can we begin to celebrate our unruly bodies?
