QTPOC Histories: Marvellous Grounds Book Launch


Join us for the Ottawa book launch of Marvellous Grounds: Queer of Colour Histories of Toronto
January 15 6:30pm

For the launch, we'll be joined by all three editors of this anthology: Jin Haritaworn, Ghaida Moussa & Syrus Marcus Ware. This event will be hosted by Debbie Owusu-Akyeeah.

About the book:
The first collection of its kind to feature the art, activism, and writings of QTBIPOC in Toronto, Marvellous Grounds tells the stories that have shaped Toronto’s landscape but are frequently forgotten or erased. Responding to an unmistakable desire in QTBIPOC communities for history and lineage, this rich volume allows us to imagine new ancestors and new futures.

About the Space:
Venus Envy is a physically accessible space. We have an automatic door, no steps and a gender inclusive bathroom big enough for most mobility devices.
We use foldable, plastic chairs for our workshops. We have three softer chairs that we're happy to reserve if you get in touch with us before the workshop.
We do sell some scented products so we're unfortunately not able to make this a scent-free space. However, we do ask that guests refrain from wearing strongly scented products.

We're happy to book ASL interpretation by request! Please get in touch with us in advance of the workshop if you would like us to book interpreters. At minimum, we will need one week's notice, but the earlier you can make your request, the better.

Your kids are welcome to join us for this event! We'll have a blanket and toys set up on the floor where young children can play. There is no age restriction in place in order to enter Venus Envy.
