To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas anti-2SLGBTQI+ hate crimes and harassment are increasing across Ontario.
Whereas drag artists have been specifically targeted for intimidation by anti-2SLGBTQI+ extremists.
Whereas drag performance is a liberating and empowering art form that allows diverse communities to see themselves represented and celebrated.
Whereas drag artists, small businesses, and 2SLGTBQI+ communities deserve to feel safe everywhere in Ontario.
Therefore, we the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to pass the Protecting 2SLGBTQI+ Communities Act so that 2SLGTBQI+ Safety Zones can deter bigoted harassment and an advisory committee can be struck to protect 2SLGTBQI+ Communities from hate crimes.
