Coming out…and coming into yourself

July 6, 7 p.m.

Join this peer support group for all gender and sexually diverse folxs to discuss and share the experience of coming out — and to discuss topics such as coming out to your family, coming out at school or in the workplace, coming out in a relationship, coming out as a something different than you were before (and other topics related to labels), issues faced because of feeling different, recognizing and overcoming internalized stuff, among other discussion topics (as directed by the group each month).
This group is inclusive of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, gender and sexually diverse identities that fall into the galaxy of gender and sexual diversity.

Student Essay Contest, Hosted By Humanist Canada
Deadline: September 30, 2020

The national voices for English and French Humanism in Canada, Humanist Canada and Association humaniste du Québec, respectively, will host another essay contest this year. The theme for the Humanist Canada Essay Contest this year is “Religion and Humanism in Education” in a Canadian context. We welcome all high school students to submit their strongest ideas, thoughts, and arguments to us.
The essay contest provides an opportunity for students to think critically on Humanism in Canadian society. There will be a total of $8,000 in prize money, for students who compete in the contest and win. The first place prize in each language will be $1,000. Deadline is September 14th, 2020 at 11:59pm Eastern Time. There are no predefined topics. However, the bounds of the content should be relevant to the humanist community and its values across Canada. For more contest information, see: https://www.humanistcanada.ca/programs/essay-contest/
