On November 28, 2017, Prime Minister Trudeau delivered a public apology to LGBTQ2 Canadians.
He struggled to hold back tears as he spoke that day. I wept openly.
That text is embedded in this quilt.
I can't read it without tears.
This quilt is a celebration of that speech. And a thank you.
It represents a defining moment for Canada.
And for me. After a lifetime of feeling less than, of living in fear, of feeling out of place, I finally knew that I was valued, that I was safe and that I had a respected place in my country.
