Discrimination

May 26, 2021, 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

On Wednesday, May 26, BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner (BCOHRC) is hosting a virtual screening of our new “I love my human rights” video series with a story featuring Vancouver’s Brandon Yan.

Yan is the Executive Director for Out On Screen, a B.C. film and education non-profit that runs the Vancouver Queer Film Festival and Out In Schools. In the video, he will share his experiences of discrimination as a queer man of mixed Chinese-White heritage.

Following the screening, Yan will discuss issues of anti-Asian hate, racism, homophobia and the power of advocacy and queer joy.

This video is the latest in a series BCOHRC is producing as part of our mandate to educate British Columbians about systemic discrimination and how to dismantle it.

The “I love my human rights” project uses video storytelling as a tool to help personalize complex human rights concepts and encourage empathy and action. The video will be released publicly following the screening.
