Celebrate being YOU!

 

•A chance to meet other LGBT2SQ Black youth  and involved with Children's Aid

•A time to talk, get artsy and CELEBRATE what it means to be Black and LGBT2SQ

•Arts activities, fabulous chances for gender expression that steps outside the gender boxes

•Coffee House celebration -- a chance to PERFORM if you WANT to, but you don't have to.  If you have a song, spoken word, dub poem, reading, music, skit or anything about your identity that you MIGHT want to perform, bring it along!

•FREE LUNCH and TTC included

 

WHO is it for? -- Open to kids and youth up to age 21 who are or have been involved with any Children's Aid agency (in care or with family or kin).  "Black" includes bi-racial or multi-racial if you include Black as part of your identity.  LGBT2SQ includes queer, 2-Spirit, pansexual, trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, asexual, intersex, gay, bi, lesbian, gender independent, gender creative and other gender or sexual identities.  Or you might be questioning your identity. Or maybe you experience or express your gender in ways that others just don't understand.
