It is a tragic time for the LGBTQ community, our neighbourhood, and the city. We are all grieving the lives lost as the recent tragedy impacting our community unfolds.
We all remember the ones still missing. The issues we face today are unfortunately not new and touch many marginalized and vulnerable communities. We welcome everyone to join us to grieve together, heal together, and rise together.
