ESQUIMALT FARMERS MARKET – Advocacy, Education & Outreach. We said hello at the Esquimalt Farmers Market this June and July. Not only did we meet several sisters, some local and a few traveling souls, we engaged with many “straight” (is that pc?) folk who were happy to talk with us and find out what we were doing there—recruiting, of course!

Friday June 1 – MOVIE: The Gymnast
After a devastating injury sidelines her gymnastics career, talented Jane Hawkins (Dreya Weber) settles for a career as a massage therapist. She pours the passion, strength and discipline that once fueled her sport into maintaining her new job and a loveless marriage. She gets a second chance at her dream, however, when an opportunity arises for her to perform with an acrobatic aerial performance troupe similar to Cirque du soleil. As she trains with her partner, Serena (Addie Yungmee), a closeted lesbian, Jane rediscovers her passion for performing. As the stunning pair prepares to audition their act for a Las Vegas show, the gravitational pull between the two women becomes increasingly unavoidable…
A visually compelling film that challenges notions of both ability and identity, The Gymnast is foremost a story about hope and taking the necessary risks to fully become yourself.
We’ll let you know the final tally once the dust has settled. In the meantime, here are some photos and likes for Our Voices.
