This video deals with the issue of depression and was made by art therapist Shawna Dale and musician Jordan B. Wright to help raise awareness and end the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Trans women of color are the most targeted victims of violence in the LGBTQIA community. Trans women make up 72% of anti-LGBTQI homicide victims and 89% of these victims were people of color (Ahmed et al. 2013). The following video focuses on this subject and the need for gender neutral washrooms. Shake This is on the full length album coming soon.

The video is being used by Rainbow Health to educate folks about discrimination in washrooms and open up conversations about gender and the need for ALL GENDER washrooms. Rainbow health just designed gender neutral signs which are available:

While public lavatories were intended to 'clean up' city streets in the nineteenth century, to make the excretory habits of the poor and immoral visible and subject to hygienic surveillance (Stallybrass and White 2007), they now function to discipline gender in ways that are mediated by class, 'race', and visible physical disabilities. Those who are trans and/or perceived to be gender non-conforming are subject to visual scrutiny in public toilets (Cavanagh 2010: 52).

Markus Star and the RU Trans Collective are working towards converting some of the multi-stall male/female bathrooms on campus to be for all genders. It can be expensive to build new bathrooms, and they recognize that building more single-stalls is a long-term goal at Ryerson.
