Many times, too often, we see the big guy picking on the little guy. My name is Jay, and I am the director of this show I call Cape & Cowl. Stepping out from behind the curtain for a moment to say I will not stand for bullies.
I will stand with the bullied, to make sure they are not bullied again. I get a fiery passion to defend those who can not defend themselves, and want you to know you have a safe space with me.
**UPDATE** Through the generosity of Asher's family, the $200 honorarium has been increased to $500!!!!! Amazing news!!!Presented in honour of Asher MacDonald on behalf of Cape & Cowl and My Mother's Bloomers.
The Asher MacDonald 'You First' Award
(Because Asher always put others before himself) ******************** To be awarded annually on every May 15th starting on May 15th, 2019 to a deserving youth in the rainbow community for their outstanding contribution to helping trans and queer youth find and have a voice. ***************** Recognized youth will be awarded a plaque in honour of continuing Asher's vision, and be awarded $200 to fund their ongoing projects bettering our community.
May 17th is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia. We extend that to every day we breathe, and dedicate our thoughts today to our friend Asher MacDonald who we lost way too soon and who lived each day selflessly helping others find and have a voice.
