The term Resurgence is defined as: a rising again into life, activity, or prominence. Over the past decades, The Pride movement evolved from one of protest and demonstration, to one of celebration. However, the celebration has mainly been for Lesbian and Gay individuals, while our Bisexual, Trans-Identified, Two-Spirit, Non-Binary, Queer and Queer People of Colour communities have not yet felt the same progress and desire for celebration of equality. Furthermore, they have continued to be subjected to both unintentional and intentional discrimination from society and fellow members of the community.
“I have had trailblazers before me who have made it ok for me to be me and be out at work and in my community but I haven’t taken on the responsibility of being a trailblazer for those in our community who still need it the most.”
