Hey everyone! Hope you are having a good fall. Here are some things happening in the community over the next week.

  1. Queer, Trans, and Allied Youth Drop-In Launch – Today (September 25) at 7 pm at the Upside Teen Lounge (4636 Elk Lake Drive)
    To celebrate the opening of the Queer, Trans, & Allied Youth Drop-In, we’re going to have a little get to know you event! If you are a queer, trans, or allied youth between 13 and 18 and want to meet new people, come hang out with us! Get to know everyone who’s made this drop in happen, including our youth leaders, Macayla and Courtney. If your parents, care takers, or family are interested, they are welcome to come as well. There’ll be food and general good vibes. After a bit of mingling, the adults will head out, and you’ll get to chat with Macayla and Courtney about what you want to get out of this drop in, and we’ll talk about what sort of community we want to build.
  2. Peers Block Party BBQ with The Tuesdays – Saturday, October 3rd noon- 2 pm at the PEERS Victoria Resource Society, #1-744 Fairview Rd Victoria BC V9A 5T9
