This website was our first initiative which launched in the fall of 2016. Since then our site has become a central portal for all LGBT2Q+ events, resources and opportunities in London, Ontario and across southwestern Ontario. QueerEvents.ca provides a free community listing for queer-centric events and community resources who are providing support and services to our community.
London Ontario has a diverse and vibrant Queer community. However, as a community we have long been disconnected from each other in different spaces in our city. In 2016, the Queer Events team came together and decided we were going to do everything we can to help ensure these spaces can be bridged, that our community can have access to the spaces, tools and information they needed to connect with each other in a different way.
Our goal is to see a more connected, stronger, welcoming and accessible LGBT2Q+ community.
Our first phase was creating a tool that empowers our community with information we need to connect, whether you are looking to expand your social group, gain new experiences, are new to the city or to (an expert at) being out and proud. QueerEvents.ca was born. A dynamic website with comprehensive information on what is happening in our community and resources we may need to access including information to assist in breaking down barriers and helping individuals to make more informed decisions.
Our second phase is all about you. Connecting with and identifying the gaps in our community and the ways in which we can help bring our community together. This has led to several initiatives and we are currently developing more. If you would like to provide your input or collaborate with us please connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Note: Queer Events is not affiliated with any other group or organization. We are independent!
