Beaver Hall Gallery did NOT Receive Death Threats over Radfem Rise Up

Yesterday it was announced that a coalition of women advocating for 2-Spirit, trans and sex working women’s rights were successful in convincing Toronto’s Beaver Hall Gallery to close its doors to the anti-trans, anti-sex worker ‘Radfem Rise Up!’ conference.

In response to this, a number of claims have appeared online in the last twenty-four hours that Beaver Hall Gallery had supposedly received “hundreds of threats of death and violence directed at women and at the venue staff.”

However, these claims are completely false: According to a gallery committee member, Beaver Hall Gallery did not receive any death threats.

While of course we condemn any death threat issued by anyone on any side of these debates, we have seen no evidence of such whatsoever.

Our coalition believes that this discussion would move forward in a more positive way for everyone if anti-trans, anti-sex work radical feminists would at least attempt to restrict themselves to making factual statements on the relevant issues.
