Everybody Is A Little Bit Racist

Thursday, 22 March 2012 Categories // Community Events, Activism, Events

The AIDS Committee of Ottawa roles out their 2012 Campaign.

The AIDS Committee of Ottawa has done a soft release of their 2012 campaign this month, with a hard release planned to coincide with the International Day Against Homophobia on May 17th. The campaign, which explores how blatant and internalized homophobia, racism, transphobia, and heteronormativity adversely impact the health and well-being of Ottawa’s queer community, was created to help draw links between systemic issues and health outcomes. Like two sides of a coin, one campaign specifically addresses heterosexual men and women, while the second campaign, inspired by the Douche Bags of Grindr website and the debate triggered by the publishing of Toronto’s The Grids’ Newspaper cover story ‘The Dawn Of A New Gay’, specifically addresses homosexual men. 

On Thursday, May 10th at 6pm, Gay Zone (420 Cooper Street) will host a strategy session around disseminating the cards for International Day Against Homophobia and is seeking volunteers interested in handing them out as part of a Radical Queer Flashmob. Friends and allies of Ottawa’s queer community are more than welcome to take part and no RSVP is necessary. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

To request copies of the campaign, you can e-mail the AIDS Committee of Ottawa at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or write to them at ACO, 251 Bank Street, Suite 700, Ottawa, ON, K2P 1X3
