Description & Services
Description of service(s) 1. Via phone, text, email or Facebook Messenger, interested parties are warmly invited to confidentially contact us to ask difficult questions, share worries, vent, or otherwise express themselves and seek support regarding their own sexuality/gender concerns or those of a loved one.  
 
2. Our monthly coffee nights are for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, asexual, pansexual, intersex, and queer or questioning individuals and loved ones. Attendees will often come alone or bring someone with them. Our meetings are usually a mix of loved ones and LGBTQ+ youth and adults. Attendance typically ranges between 5 and 12 people. 
 
3. The Rainbow Peace March is held in Saint John every year on May 17th (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia). This is a community and visibility building event which grows every year. Come out and show your support! 
 
Our mission is to provide a non-judgmental and emotionally safe environment to increase comfort with the expression of gender and sexual diversity. This is achieved through warm and respectful discussion, Q & A, sharing participant stories and empathetic listening to the concerns of those who feel comfortable sharing them.
