This year marks the 16th annual Breaking the Silence conference at the University of Saskatchewan, and I am (again) proud to be a member of the board working very hard to bring it to you. This year we are focusing on the idea of finding justice and equality on and off the playing field.
As we all know, the locker room has long been a place of dread for our youth, and that doesn’t always end with high school graduation. Join us on March 22nd and 23rd and we attempt to throw open the doors, and let a little light, and some fresh air into those dark spaces. Our topic this year? Clearing it Out! Removing Homophobia from the Locker Room and Beyond.
You can learn a little more at our facebook event page or at our website! Hope to see you there.
…and yes, for those of you who specifically wrote on your evaluations that you’d have liked to have heard a little more from me during last years conference, this year I’ll be offering two sessions. I do have to admit, I loved the one comment that was written in that simply stated that next year they’d like to see “More Tobi”. 😉
