A couple years ago, the Alberta government bared a storm of criticism and pushed ahead with an ideologically-driven cut when it delisted gender reassignment surgery as a covered medical procedure. This is a procedure even Iran pays half for.
So it’s good to hear stories like this:
The landslide winner of a radio station’s controversial breast implant contest is a transgender Calgarian.
The winner of the Amp Radio contest, named by the station only as a musician called Avery, tallied 76 per cent of 30,000 online votes.
While an internet contest isn’t necessarily limited to Calgarians, it makes me proud to see that not only did Avery win, but did so by a landslide.
In an era when trans rights bills are still being stalled by our Conservative
overloard government and his unelected Senate, it’s good to see some progress on treating each other as equals.
Make sure to watch the interview with Avery when they announce the winner:
