December 1, 2022 – Government of PEI: Lucky Fusca, executive director of the PEI Transgender Network Ltd., says receiving funding for their project will allow the organization to create a series of events that will centre, uplift, and continue to foster positive experiences for the transgender and gender diverse community on Prince Edward Island.
The organization is one of 24 recipients that received a total of $500,000 in funding from the provincial Gender, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (GEDI) and Community Enhancement Program. It supports projects and initiatives that directly contribute to making Prince Edward Island a more inclusive province.
“All of us at PEI Transgender Network Ltd. are profoundly grateful to the GEDI selection committee for including us in this initiative. The funding will allow us to engage with the community at large, providing accessible resources through our event programming during Transgender Week of Visibility to a variety of sectors, including healthcare and education,” said Fusca.
“Undoubtedly this opportunity will have a lasting impact on our community, and we are so looking forward to bringing this project to life.”
