Toto Ro Andre: will be hosting the evening and I am sure his cute and friendly teddy bears will be assisting.
Bret: Brett (nom de plume: Riot Boy Grrl) is a person of many passions and layers, who distrusts binaries and labels and looks at the world through a glitter encrusted lens smeared with bike grease. He is forever seeking (sur)real moments creating art, connecting, and organizing for liberation. He is currently writing a blog that seeks to challenge the status quo at every turn, and focuses on Brett's experience as a queer, non-binary trans person of size, as well as analyzing white supremacy and rape culture. He spends time working as a counsellor and organizer in the LGBTQ* community (Calgary Outlink), and moonlights as a Bike Mechanic and Core member of the Good Life Community Bicycle Shop. Brett aspires to having more attitude.
