A free workshop, celebration and coffee house will be conducted for Black LGBT2SQ youth involved with any Children's Aid Society on
April 28th, Saturday 11am-2pm,

This will be an opportunity for LGBT2SQ Black youth to come together and celebrate intersecting Queer/Trans Blackness.
It is a chance to meet other LGBT2SQ Black youth and kids involved with Children's Aid and a time to talk, get artsy and CELEBRATE what it means to be Black and LGBT2SQ.
Coffee House open mic celebration will be an opportunity to perform if you want to, but you don't have to. If you have a song, spoken word, dub poem, reading, music, skit or anything about your identity that you MIGHT want to perform, bring it along!
FREE LUNCH and TTC fare included
The event is open to kids and youth up to age 21 who are or have been involved with any Children's Aid Society (in care or with family or kin).
"Black" includes bi-racial or multi-racial if you include Black as part of your identity.
LGBT2SQ includes queer, 2-Spirit, pansexual, trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, asexual, intersex, gay, bi, lesbian, gender independent, gender creative and other gender or sexual identities. Or you might be questioning your identity. Or maybe you experience or express your gender in ways that others just don't understand.
