True North Eager Beaver Interview Project — Human Rights Activist Murray Billett


[Recording date: September 15, 2022]


The Eager Beaver Pod asks its guests if they're willing to provide an extended interview, so that we may better get to know them/what makes them tick.


When they agree, we package it together and present it to you as part of this series.


This week's guest, is noted human rights activist Murray Billett.


Join us for a fascinating chat about the evolution of 2SLGBTQ+ rights over the decades, policing, mental health, and the story of the Delwin Vriend court case which enshrined into law an end to legal discrimination on the basis sexual orientation in Canada, as we approach its 25th anniversary, from the perspective of someone who was involved in the 7-year-long struggle.


This is episode 24 of the TNEB Interview Project.

Equality for 2SLGBTQ+ people has not come at an equally rapid pace for everyone around the world, so if you wish to act globally as well as locally, please consider making a donation to the Rainbow Railroad, a Canadian organization that helps bring persecuted members of the global Rainbow Commumity to safety, here in Canada.
