There have been a recent string of suicides of Gay teens in the United States related to bullying. This is a issue which affects everyone of us, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.

How does the bullying of LGBT youth affect others? What does Homophobia and Transphobia have to do with violence against women? Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign seeks to discuss this with the Ryerson community during our upcoming ‘Blueprints for Change’ Discussion Sessions next week ( Wed Oct 6th & Thurs Oct 7th)

We will look at why this bullying happens and how the pressures on men to perform masculinity 24/7 lead to violence that affects Women and the LGBTT2SQQA community…as well as heterosexual men.

The Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign presents ‘Blueprints for Change’ a discussion which looks at questions like:

“Is violence against women still an issue?”
“What about just stopping violence in general”‘
“What does the violence have to do with me?”

Wednesday October 6th from 12-2pm at ENG LG12  in the ENG Building (George Vari Engineering and Computing Centre,245 Church Street)


Thursday October 7th from 12-2 in the Heaslip House (7th Floor – Chang School Building, 297 Victoria Street)

The Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign’s : Blueprints for Change. A multimedia presentation/discussion w/ Jeff Perera.

We will discuss the pressures facing Men and Women in today’s society and how it affects all our lives and various relationships.


The Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign works to end violence against women and inspire men to be the best versions of themselves. We don’t seek to blame or shame men, but encourage them to become part of a change affecting the lives of both men and women.
