October/November Newsletter

Life is truly a series of surprises. We thought we did an amazing job at last year’s AIDS Walk, and this year, our darling community blew last year’s numbers out of the water as we raised more than $56,000 for OUT and AIDS Saskatoon. Just incredible. We are putting that money directly into our sexual health programs, including to support a brand new youth testing clinic on rotating Wednesday nights and to support our 3rd annual Two Spirit Feast and Round Dance on December 1st to commemorate the beginning of AIDS Awareness Week.

We also have our second GLITTER Gala on the way on October 21st at the Top of the Inn at the Sheraton Cavalier. As I type this letter, we are already 90% sold out, so if you are quick on the draw you can go to outsaskatoon.ca/glitter_2017 to snap up some of the few remaining tickets. We anticipate another magical night as we enjoy lively entertainment, warm conversation, and hear from many of our community members. Of course, the best part of the night will again be the dance party that follows, so bring your dancing shoes!

Also, don’t forget that this Saturday is our Holiday Supper, where you can share in a delicious Thanksgiving feast, and make a few new friends. Now, speaking of friends, I must become a bit more somber for a moment. As many of you know, we recently lost a bright light in our community. Mark Reis passed away in Regina on September 15th. For years, Mark has been a dedicated volunteer at OUTSaskatoon along with many other organizations. His heart was completely in community work, his hands could build, cook, and craft anything we could dream up, and his hugs were the kind of medicine that healed even the darkest days. We will miss you Mark.

Much love,

Rachel Loewen Walker
