Connect with your community
Queer Events works towards ensuring that our community can have access to the spaces, tools and information we need to connect with each other in a different way. Our goal is to see a more connected, stronger, welcoming and accessible LGBT2Q+ community.
Our first initiative was to create a tool that empowers our community with information we need to connect, whether you are looking to expand your social group, gain new experiences, are new to the city or to (an expert at) being out and proud. QueerEvents.ca was born. A dynamic website with comprehensive information on what is happening in our community and resources we may need to access, including information to assist in breaking down barriers and helping individuals to make more informed decisions.
Our other initiatives and programs work towards connecting with and identifying the gaps in our community as well as ways in which we can help bring our community together.
