Description: The Guelph Resource Centre for Gender Empowerment and Diversity (GRCGED), the Ontario Public Interest Research Group – Guelph (OPIRG), CFRU campus community radio, Women in Crisis (WIC) , Guelph Queer Equality (GQE), Women and Trans Bike Night and the CSA Bike Centre are teaming up to put on a series of events for the Guelph community that addresses sexualized violence.
Glam Your Ride! 5:00pm-8:00pm This is a special edition of Women and Trans Bike Night. We will have streamers, paint and ribbon to decal our rides. To honour the integrity of Women and Trans Bike Night, this event is open exclusively to women, trans folks and gender variant folks.
Critical Mass! 8:00pm-9:00pm Open to all genders. The theme will be “pedalling towards a future free from sexual assault and harassment.” Our Critical Mass is open to bicycles, scooters, wheelchairs, skateboards and skates. The ride will take us down and through some major Guelph streets. The Critical Mass ends at our film screening location.
Roll-In Movie! 9:00pm-11:30pm A roll-in movie is like a drive-in movie, except that it promotes alternative forms of transportation; bicycles, scooters, wheelchairs, skateboards, rollerblades and rollerskates are all the hype. All genders are welcome.
We will be screening some shorts as well as a surprise feature film.
This location has a wheelchair and scooter accessible surface at the screening site. There will also be chairs. There are accessible washrooms on-site. Active listener volunteers will be on-hand in order to support anyone who needs or wants to speak to someone, and a space will be provided for this. Water will be available on-site. Closed-captioning will be provided for the feature film. Childcare can be made available upon request to [email protected].
This evening of events is an opportunity for us to talk about sexualized harassment and violence. We wish to open the discussion in a way that acknowledges and respects a variety of lived experiences, and we are doing this in the spirit of community care.
