Mapping the Void: Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ Experiences in Hamilton

Members of Hamilton's Two Spirit and LGBTQ+ Communities are invited to a free event to launch the final report from the Hamilton LGBTQ+ Needs Assessment Research! Tuesday, June 11, 7 to 9 p.m. at Mills Hardware.

Jun 10, 2019

Join us for a night of refreshment, community speakers and celebration, and be among the first people to get your hands on the final report and recommendations generated by last years Needs Assessment Survey.

The LGBTQ+ Needs Assessment Survey has been the result of years of grassroots, volunteer community organizing and was developed and implemented through extensive consultation of our diverse communities and with support from McMaster University and The AIDS Network. With over 900 survey respondents, it is our hope that this fulsome and detailed data will be used to help improve the lives of Two Spirit and LGBTQIA+ people who live, work and play in Hamilton Ontario.

Free refreshments will be provided courtesy of Rainbow Gurlz catering service, as well as complementary non-alcoholic drinks (with a cash bar available).

This event has been made possible through the generous support of the Hamilton Community Foundation, The McMaster University Social Sciences department, The McMaster University Office of Community Engagement, Pride Hamilton and The AIDS Network
