Racism is a reality for many Canadians of colour, and its effects can be damaging physically and psychologically. We asked Canadians to share their experiences of racism, self-care, self-love, and "paying it forward" for real change.

These Toronto-based dancers are the founders of Ill Nana/DiverseCity Dance Company, a queer, multiracial dance company committed to performing their stories on stage as well as providing more accessible education and performance opportunities for LGBTTIQQ2S communities, prioritizing people of colour, various body types, backgrounds, classes, and abilities.
