Allison chats with Niko Stratis, who has been heavily involved in responding to Meghan Murphy’s event at Toronto Public Library, about this event, the impact it has had on trans people, how libraries might rethink “intellectual freedom” if we’re committed to being trans inclusive, and the failures of media coverage of the event. Read their piece, “Someone Tell The Media That Trans Folks Were At The Meghan Murphy Protests, Too” and check out their Twitter feed to learn more about their work.
