Starting a queer band collective based out of Toronto

We are looking to start a queer band collective based out of Toronto. We are not trying to be the queer Broken Social Scene nor promoters but rather are looking to work together with other queer bands/musicians and music lovers to provide more opportunities for queer bands to get out there and get exposure as well as support each others efforts. We aim to do this by tentatively doing 2-3 shows a year to showcase the collective and the different acts involved in it. We are looking for other bands who are interested in an idea like this to get involved too as there's plenty of work to do with putting on events. We intend to keep this as grassroots as possible with records for the collective and it's events being transparent and any money raised from them fed back into the running of these events. One half or this project currently plays in a band called Casey vs. Jon (http://www.caseyvsjon.com) and the other is a fan of queer rock and queercore. If this sounds like something that would interest you or if you want to know more, feel free to contact us. At this point, to be able to properly manage it, we're only going to work with a few bands and start from there. Thanks for taking the time to read this and we hope to hear back from you at queerbandcollective@gmail.com!

All The Best,
Casey and Gards

Equal Opportunity Surgery Funding for Transmen With Disabilities

To: MSP Payment Schedule Administration

Dear CarolAnne McNeill,

I am writing to you in regards to the situation involving Dr. David Musto and his decision to pull out of doing FTM Mastecomies/Contouring, or simply put, top surgery.

Dr. Musto was the only surgeon most could go to because Dr. Brown and Dr. Bowman both have a very high cost.

My understanding is if those who were on Dr. Musto's list go to Dr. Brown and front the cost, that MSP would reimburse us.

There are transmen who were on Dr. Musto's list who are on disability and have no resources. The decision MSP has put forth at this time is unrealistic and in no way a possibility for people on disability.

I am asking you to advocate to make this a realistic and equal opportunity for those with disabilities and living around, on or below the poverty line.

Trans community forum

To the various transsexual, transgender, and genderqueer communities of the Greater Vancouver area:

On the week before Pride (July 19th - July 25th), a trans community forum is going to be taking place @ Rhodes Wellness College - 1125 Howe Street Vancouver, BC.

The organizers of this sliding scale (no one turned away) community-centered event envision a bringing together of diverse trans communities, both individuals and service providers, to establish a cohesive vision of what the specific needs of our trans communities are at this exact moment in time---through a focus on health and coalition building.

We see this is an opportunity for trans people, their allies and the health professionals that work with them to create community, hear the needs and concerns of the communities, and to share the skills and knowledge that we all have.

At present we are looking for volunteers and leaders to help out with committees:

- Audio/Video
- Accessibility & Logistics
- Advertising/ Promotion
- Dance/Welcoming/Entertainment
- Funding
- Fund-raising
- Food
- General Volunteer
- March
- Print
- Programming

If you feel you as though you can contribute to any or all, of these committees we encourage you to please join us at one of our next meetings.

May 29, June 12, June 27, and July 11th.
@ the Generations Office.
Suite 610 - 1033 Davie Street.
Buzz 620 at the door to get up.

We look forward to folks of all genders getting involved in this wonderful, community building event!

In Solidarity,
The Vancouver Trans Forum organizing committee
vancouvertransforum@gmail.com

*the Generations Office is wheelchair accessible. There is an accessible washroom on the main floor*

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
About the Forum: Tentative Structure

Monday night (July 19th) through till Thursday night (July 22nd) there will be a mini trans film fest, to be held at different venues across town.

Friday night will be the official opening of the forum, with a film, keynote speaker, and social events (ie: dance party, board games)

Saturday's panels, workshops, and facilitated discussions will be geared more towards individual trans/gender queer community members. Examples of proposed workshops include: a know your rights workshop, a self defense workshop, and a facilitated discussion on substance use in the trans community.

Saturday night will close with an "all bodies swim night" wherein an accessible pool is rented for all to go swimming.

Sunday's panels, workshops, and facilitated discussions will be geared more towards service providers, health professionals, and individual community members interested in building broad-based coalitions. Examples of proposed workshops include: how to better support trans people working in the sex trade, a panel discussion on the changing policies of university women's centres, and a political strategical session on public bathroom safety.

As the week will be taking place the week before Pride, the collective organizers thought that it would be a nice fit to end the forum with a trans pride march, similar to the ones that happen in Toronto and San Francisco.

The Vancouver Trans Forum also understands that many trans folk belong to numerous marginalized communities simultaneously.

Thus Vancouver Trans Forum encourages participation and feedback from persons who experience, combat, wish to speak about: sexism, racism, abelism, poverty and relative topics that involve intersecting forms of oppression.

Wolfe Acquires Four LGBT Titles

Wolfe Releasing and WolfeVideo.com, the oldest and largest exclusive distributor of gay and lesbian films, announced today that it has acquired the distribution rights to four outstanding films: The timely Sundance selection 8: The Mormon Proposition; Nicole Conn’s much-anticipated Elena Undone; the underground gem My Normal; and the hip Slamdance hit

The Four-Faced Liar.

"We are exceedingly proud to be acquiring such diverse and high quality films," said Wolfe Releasing Founder and CEO Kathy Wolfe.

8: The Mormon Proposition, directed by Emmy Award winning journalist Reed Cowan, presents a searing indictment of the Mormon Church's historic involvement in the passage of California’s Proposition 8, and the Mormon religion’s secretive, decades-long campaign against gay rights. The film premiered this year in the heart of Mormon country at the Sundance film festival.

Wolfe and Red Flag Releasing will collaborate to release 8. Red Flag has scheduled a June theatrical release; while Wolfe will bring the title to DVD in July. "This is a vitally important documentary for the gay community," said Wolfe President Maria Lynn. "The message is urgent and we believe it will spur those who watch it to get politically involved."

Elena Undone tells the story of Elena, a pastor’s wife stifled by a drab selfless life of devotion. When she meets Peyton, a writer struggling with personal tragedy, the two women are instantly drawn to each other. But when Peyton hesitates to get involved, Elena finds a will she has never known and pushes Peyton into what becomes a passionate affair of soulmates.

Elena Undone is the latest work of Nicole Conn, whose 1992 film Claire of the Moon electrified lesbian audiences with its sensual coming out story. The Claire DVD continues as a best seller and attracts devoted fans to this day. "We are thrilled to be working with Nicole Conn again after 20 years," said Lynn. Elena Undone will debut at the San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Film Festival this June; after that, Wolfe will be trafficking it to film festivals worldwide.

My Normal tells the story of Natalie, a lesbian from New York’s Lower East Side, who dreams of becoming a filmmaker, but who works as a popular dominatrix. When her big break finally comes, Natalie finds, to her surprise, that realizing a dream doesn’t bring the fulfillment she expected. Instead, she devises a way to use her unique talents to get exactly what she wants.

"My Normal is a true undiscovered gem," says Lynn, "and we are happy to be introducing it to the LGBT community." The film is currently on the US festival circuit, and will come to DVD in late 2010.

The Four-Faced Liar, "a comedy about drama," tells the story of a group of New York 20-somethings. Bridget is a hip, womanizing lesbian who loves Emily Bronte, and who lives with her guy pal Trip. One night, they meet straight-laced New York newbies Greg and Molly at their favorite hangout, The Four-Faced Liar. Molly is a bit appalled by free spirited Bridget – but she’s also attracted to her, and in time, the friends’ lives are hilariously complicated when the two women fall in love.

The Four-Faced Liar was written and co-produced by Marja Lewis Ryan, who also stars in the film as Bridget. "The film was a delightful find at Slamdance," said Lynn. "It deservedly played to sold out audiences there." Wolfe will be taking The Four Faced Liar to US and Canadian festivals throughout the year.

"As Wolfe celebrates its 25th year distributing gay and lesbian movies, we are delighted that such quality lesbian and gay films are being made, and we are proud to distribute them," said Kathy Wolfe, Founder & CEO of Wolfe Releasing and WolfeVideo.com.
