GRR is a volunteer-based organization whose mission is to amplify and empower the voices of female, trans, Two-Spirit and gender-expansive youth and adults through music creation, collaboration and performance. By providing a safer space for creative expression, we cultivate leadership skills and advocate for an equitable and inclusive society.
At GRR, you'll learn an instrument, form a band, write and record an original song, and perform at a live music venue. In addition to technical training, you'll take part in music and non-music workshops centred on creativity and confidence-building, such as songwriting, image & identity, self-defence, zine-making and more. No musical experience is required!
GRR values the diversity of age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, and sexual orientation. We promote respect and do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or other discriminatory behaviour or expression.
A special note to male-identified allies: GRR is primarily led by and for female trans, Two-Spirit and gender-expansive youth and adults. We value diversity, inclusion, and sensitivity towards all individuals, regardless of gender identity or expression. The organization welcomes the support of male-identified allies and anyone who wants to volunteer to respect the importance of leadership by the above-identified groups.
