What We Do
Our centre serves all genders and sexual orientations, no matter where the individual falls. Programs arise out of the needs expressed by the people who access our centre. Our programming addresses the underlying issues which affect the health and welfare of our community by countering heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.
