The war against queer and trans rights in Canada is ramping up after members of the Conservative Party voted overwhelmingly to advance anti-LGBTQ2S+ policies at their annual convention at the Centre des congrès de Québec in Quebec City over the weekend. But just down the street from the convention, at a queer bar called Le Drague, few seemed to know what the convention was about or that it was happening just a stone’s throw away. Outside the bar, Xtra chatted with Christian Parisée, a 19-year-old CEGEP student who didn’t know about the convention, but expressed concerns about the anti-LGBTQ2S+ rhetoric espoused by Conservatives.
