Halloween: Think Before You Dress Up


Halloween is easily one of my favourite holidays of the year. However cultural appropriation is no fun, and should be taken very seriously.

On the theme of Halloween outfits – here is a good piece by Hannah Barath, a student assistant from UBC Access  & Diversity:
Hip vs Horrible Halloween Outfits 

And if you’re unsure whether or not if your costume is racist, here’s a piece by Kat Lazo of Everyday Feminism.

The UBC Equity & Inclusion Office can connect you to more resources on how to be respectful of other people’s cultures, especially during this time of year.
