The Struggle for Non Binary Rights in Quebec


    In this episode of La Mentalité Verte, Alexe Frédéric Mignot, an activist for the rights of non-binary people in Quebec, discusses the importance of gender identity and the recognition of marker X on official documents with Alex Tyrrell. Mx Mignot stresses the importance of preserving minority rights for the well-being of all, explains why it's crucial to have marker X on documents such as the health insurance card, criticizes Quebec's delay in implementing marker X and questions the political will of the Legault government before addressing the fear and phobia towards non-binary people and the consequences that ensue. Finally, they encourage activism and stresses the importance of fighting for fundamental rights.

    To Remember * Gender identity is important to the well-being of non-binary people in Quebec and around the world. * The X marker on official documents, such as the health insurance card, is crucial for the respect of non-binary people's rights. * The Legault government is lagging behind in implementing the X marker and is showing a lack of political will. * It is important to raise awareness of the use of the X marker and understanding of gender identity among staff and the public service. * Activism and the fight for fundamental rights are essential to advance the rights of non-binary people.
