QUEERFLEX Land Recognition

 

As a beginning, we would like to respectfully acknowledge that we are located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for Indigenous folks whose histories, languages, and cultures continued to be impacted by colonization.

Colonization - then and now -  also continues to impact the food and bodies of the original stewards of this land in disordered and often violent ways. As such, we believe that making this land acknowledgment and committing to always working towards anti-colonial ways of thinking, doing and being is essential to what we are working to achieve at QUEERFLEX. Intersections of race identity and impacts of colonization can change a persons experience with food, fatness, fitness, queerness and wellness - we do not want to undermine this important point and are always open to hearing ways we can do better to this effect.
