Event organizing, outreach and poster design by Poe Liberado.

The recent heinous attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, which directly targeted queer and trans Latinx members of the LGBTQ community, has left a lasting effect on LGBTQ people around the world including members of our Hamilton and McMaster communities. In response to this violence, two events have been organized to allow us to come together in solidarity with members of our LGBTQ community and allies, to heal together and to memorialize the victims of this horrific attack.

In an effort to make these events accessible, the following steps have been taken:  wheelchair accessible venues which can be accessed by public transit, multilingual outreach material, ASL interpretation, and active listeners.

Please join us:
