Trans Prairie Wellness Summit 2024: Taking Root

Trans Sask, through a funding agreement with Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE), is hosting the inaugural 2024 Trans Prairie Wellness Summit (TPWS) on March 17-18, 2024 on Treaty 6 Territory, at Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon. 

This gathering will bring together Two Spirit, trans, non-binary and, gender nonconforming (2STNBGN) community members along with allied health and wellness students and providers to plant the seeds of a robust future focused on trans wellness and liberation. Over two days, participants will collaborate, educate, inspire, and create joyful futures in which every 2STNBGN person not only has what they need to survive, but thrive in the prairies. 

The conference agenda will include talks, panels, workshops, and community- and arts-based engagements such as a film screening and a clothing swap.

MAJOR! explores the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a formerly incarcerated Black transgender elder and activist who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years.

Miss Major is a veteran of the Stonewall Rebellion and a survivor of Attica State Prison, a former sex worker, an elder, and a community leader and human rights activist. She is simply “Mama” to many in her community. Her personal story and activism for transgender civil rights intersects LGBT struggles for justice and equality from the 1960s to today. At the center of her activism is her fierce advocacy for her girls, trans women of color who have survived police brutality and incarceration in men’s jails and prisons.
