Tell It Like It Is: Chosen Family

What makes a family? LGBTQ people have long gathered families of choice to keep each other safe, to nurture our dreams and the resilience of our hearts, bodies and minds. We invite you to join an intergenerational celebration and reflection on Chosen Family showcasing the stories of LGBTQ community elders.

All are invited and we welcome interest from LGBTQ elders who wish to share their stories. Events will take place afternoons from 2pm-5pm at 519 Church Street in a physically accessible, scent-free environment with all-gender washrooms. Attendance is free and refreshments will be provided.

Tell It Like It Is is an intergenerational event that will showcase the voices of LGBTQ elders through the exploration of the following themes: Chosen Family, Aging & Disability; Aging as a Person of Colour; Trans & Aging; Life of Activism.
