Our April charity colourway was developed in honour of Trans Visibility Day, which was held on March 31, 2021. Every person deserves to have their identities honoured, respected, and nurtured. As society at large makes strides toward accepting and protecting diverse sexual orientations, gender identities have increasingly become the new battle lines for those who would resist progress. Across many countries, a tide of ignorance and bigotry is erasing the lived experiences of trans people and dehumanizing them, making them targets for violent backlash; the growing denial of their unique health care needs puts trans youth in particular at greater risk of mental illness and suicide. In support of trans rights (which are the same as all human rights), $16 CAD from every skein sold will be donated to Youth Project Nova Scotia, a non-profit that provides support and services to youth 25 and under on issues related to gender and sexual identity.
Note: this listing is priced per 1 skein.
