The Muskoka Pride Committee is looking for VOLUNTEERS to help in running events and social activities - especially during Muskoka Pride Week (July 20 - 28).
For our monthly coffee events, and other social activities - we are looking for individuals who can act as hosts to the event. During Muskoka Pride Week, we are looking for people who can help with planning, setup, and takedown (depending on the event).
We are also looking for individuals interested in sitting on the BOARD OF DIRECTORS, which involves attending the monthly meetings and helping out and attending events.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Our next Board meeting is Tuesday, April 30th - https://www.facebook.com/events/486942588026105/
Congratulations to the Trillium Lakelands District School Board on holding its second annual LGBTQ conference. The conference was well-attended, by Board staff and over 85 high school students involved in the Gay-Straight Alliances at the 7 high schools.
Guest speakers included: artist Spencer Harrison, musician Kate Reid, drag bingo with Miss DivaLicious and Ms. Madge Enthat. Several TLDSB trustees were in attendance, as was Director of Education Larry Hope.
Superintendent Shelly Woon, in her opening remarks, looks forward to the day when an LGBTQ conference is no longer necessary and when all students feel safe to be who they are. In the meantime, the TLDSB is working hard to create a more inclusive and safe learning environment.
A special video was shown, in which comedian Rick Mercer welcomed the students to the conference, and reminded them that "it gets better."
Our Sunday Brunch from this past weekend was a great success. It was wonderful to see some new faces out. We are looking forward to our next Brunch - coming in JUNE. The theme will be FRENCH TOAST!
