Queer Peers Presents:
Wednesday, March 27 2019
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Open to Youth 12-25
The Queer Peers youth collective, run out of AIDS Vancouver Island, is excited to present the final session of a 6 part workshop series for queer and allied youth 12-25 in our community.
The last workshop of the series will be a round table discussion on what we can do as a community to create more accessible safer spaces. Bring your thoughts, experiences and hopes for what we could make happen if we dream big enough.
The workshop will be taking place at the Central Library branch in downtown Victoria. We will be meeting in the second floor meeting room (Meeting room 2). To get to the room either go up the stairs (to the left, just inside the main entrance) and turn around on the landing at the top – you will be facing the elevator. The room will be to the left and just behind the elevator. If you get the elevator up it is a right-turn and then an immediate right-turn again.
The meeting room as well as the library in general is wheelchair accessible. There is a single stall gender neutral accessible washroom on the first floor of the library. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the location and accessibility please send us a message!
Bus tickets and snacks will be provided.
Due to some funding changes, we are shifting our format this year, but we hope you’ll join us as we explore these exciting workshops and look forward to welcoming new members to the Queer Peers collective in 2019.
Other topics in our series will include sexual health, consent, decolonization, creating accessible and safer spaces, police and the war on drugs, criminalization and mental health and radical resilience. Stay tuned for more details soon!
We would like to acknowledge that we are gathering together to share space and build community on the lands of the Lkwungen speaking peoples. We individually and collectively continue to work towards decolonizing our shared spaces and workshops, always reflecting on and taking action against the ongoing cultural genocide that is colonialism.
