LGBTQ Cafe Event Coming to Brampton
It’s Pride month, and a very inclusive event is coming to Brampton.
LGBTQ Community Cafes are all about inclusion in Peel, providing a forum for people interested in seeing changes in Peel for the LGBTQ community in terms of programs and services, social or recreational opportunities, volunteering, safety, visibility, and employment.
Everyone is invited to share their vision, hopes, and ideas for LGBTQ inclusion in Peel.
The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, at the Community Door (Boardroom) in Brampton, at 601-7700 Hurontario Street from 5-8 p.m. This cafe in particular is geared towards the trans community.
There is a $10 honorarium fee, with bus fare and a light meal provided. This event is an accessible and LGBTQ safe space.
Subsequent meetings geared towards changes for the LGBTQ community will be held throughout July and August:
