Love is Louder - Friday, September 28th


On Friday, September 28th, there's an event planned at FirstOntario Centre that has speakers that deliver harmful messages to 2SLGBTQ+ people, and to 2SLGBTQ+ youth in particular. They erase 2SLGBTQ+ identities and ways of being, and preach against 2SLGBTQ+ human rights law. These speakers say that they don’t support conversion therapy, but the harmful effect of their arguments are the same.

We're helping to organize a counter event to let 2SLGBTQ+ folks know that they are loved and valued.

When: Friday, September 28th from 6-8pm
Where: Hamilton City Hall - 71 Main Street West, Hamilton ON

October 30th - Tarana Burke in Hamilton


When: Tuesday, October 30th

Tarana Burke, best known as the founder of the ‘me too’ movement, has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and laying the groundwork for a movement initially created to help young women of colour who have survived sexual violence.  The #metoo campaign has emerged as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment – and Tarana’s powerful story as the creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift and inspire.
