Hi I’m Gegi!

I’m here to help you or someone you love advocate for your gender expression and gender identity human rights at school. Here’s what I’d do if I were you – follow the four steps below!

Step 1


Find out if your situation could be gender expression discrimination, or gender identity discrimination.

Step 2


Your school is one of many within a school district. The district’s school board is the boss, and gives schools instructions for what should happen in different situations. These instructions are in documents called policies. Your school board might already have a policy about your situation.

Step 3


Share what you learned in Step 1 and Step 2 with a trusted adult, whether they are in your family, school, school board or the local community. This person can help you self-advocate.

Step 4


Time to take action! Now that you have knowledge, policy, and (hopefully) a supportive adult on your team, get ready to selfadvocate using Gegi’s tools and see what this looks like in action.

Hi there, Ontario K-12 teachers, administrators and other staff!

The goal of gegi.ca is to equip all Ontario students and teachers – whether transgender or cisgender – with the tools to advocate for the right to express and live their gender in their own way without experiencing discrimination, harassment or violence, and without being told they have to change.

Recognizing that gender expression and gender identity have been protected grounds in the Ontario Human Rights Code since 2012, gegi.ca indirectly supports schools in learning about how their structures, practices and curricula may have to change.

Gegi.ca has a page just for for your school board, featuring board-specific information on the policies and local resources that can help you to provide or advocate for an environment free from gender expression and gender identity discrimination.
