LGBT Youth Line Awards

Huge congrats to our Project and Volunteer Manager, Aédan, on his LGBT Youth Line award for Outstanding Contribution to Trans Activism.

Aédan traveled to Toronto to attend the 15th Community Youth Awards Gala in November where he was presented his award by friend and community partner, Vincent Bolt, of TG Innerselves. You can see photos from the event here.

2014: Year in Review | Posted February 5th, 2015

2014… What a wonderful year it was!  We have now been able to catch our breath after such a busy year and have had a chance to reflect, remember and tell the story of our busiest year ever.

Some highlights were the amazing public art works Louis Street Community created for their outdoor spaces, establishing our Artist in Residence program at Victory Park and another spectacular year for our KAZZZAM! Performers and the beautiful story boxes created by the women of SWANS.

Click here for the details on all our 2014 projects.  We are working on a notice of our 2015 projects and activities!  It is shaping up to be as exciting as the last.  Watch out for updates on projects and ways to get involved.

Thank you to all our dynamic and engaged participants and volunteers who made 2014 a memorable and meaningful year.

With gratitude,
Sarah, Blaire and Dani
