Today is the annual free BBQ put on by Jack Layton.
It’s at Withrow Park, on the north side, by Logan Avenue…. from noon until four. If you are in the area, please drop by!
Withrow Park is just a little south of Danforth, at Logan!
I’ll be there handing out fliers and trying to raise awareness for poverty – and maybe eating a dog! lol
UPDATE: It was a huge success! I handed out almost every piece of literature I brought with me – we are advertising that we’re doing a viewing of Poor No More..and so many folks were super excited about it. And there were even people who know the producer of the movie and / or worked on it with him! I think I hit the jackpot today as far as putting the word out for a movie! 🙂 It was terrific – a lot of great conversation was generated and tons of interest. And all that in two hours! I even gave Jack Layton one of our buttons. Heh. 🙂
We had a BBQ at the Centre I volunteer at.. and I got pictures of this girl… the pix don’t do her justice. She was like Shirley Temple. Just the cutest wee thing you ever saw!! She was giggling and clapping her hands and squealing in delight! lol And when she spoke? She was a clone – Shirley Temple reborn. 🙂
What a terrific time we had… and some of the face painting was incredibly rude. lol I loved it. 😉
Music, free food, Twister, dancing – all in all fantastic!!
Hello Friends and Neighbours:

THIS IS A QUEER POSITIVE & FREE EVENT FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY, INCLUDING LGBTT2QQI, FRIENDS, AND NEIGHBOURS.
We can promise all who join us a great party mix of MUSIC, ART, GAMES, FOOD and FUN, along with a RAFFLE featuring great prizes from a variety of local (and not so local) sponsors!

Time: 12 noon to 3pm
Where: South Riverdale Community Health Centre, West Yard

Our celebration marks the 30th year that LGBTT2QQI PRIDE is being celebrated in Toronto. It has been 41 years since the Stonewall rebellion of June 28th – July 2nd, 1969, when a group of butch lesbians, transsexuals, and drag queens who were patrons of the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, fought back in a courageous and defiant show of resistance against New York City cops who had raided the bar.
The Stonewall Riots have come to represent the first real show of resistance against systemic intolerance, persecution, and violence directed at queer and gender variant individuals, as well as the start of what was to become a world wide gay civil rights movement
Spread the word, and come join us in celebration of LGBTT2QQI Pride!
