See everyone this Saturday, May 16, 2015 at #PinkDotToronto!
Supporting the freedom to love!
Date/Time: Saturday, May 16 at 12:00PM
Location: Market 707 (707 Dundas Street at Bathurst)
Pinkdot is a non-profit movement originating in Singapore by a group of individuals who care deeply and support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. While we are fortunate to have marriage equality in Toronto, LGBT Asians in Toronto still face challenges from their families, friends, and the greater Asian community. With little conversation about being LGBT and Asian, this under represented group still struggles with coming out to their family and friends. We are gathering in Chinatown to show there is support and love in our community for LGBT Asians who are still trying to find a place where they feel comfortable to be themselves. It is an event for everyone; straight, gay, and allies, who support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love.
This year on Saturday, May 16, Asian Community AIDS Services and the Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter are pleased to present PinkDot Toronto. It will be hosted at the Scadding Court Community Centre, including a march through Chinatown.
Show your support for queer Asians by wearing pink and march down Chinatown during Asian Heritage Month and International Day Against Homophobia/Transphobia!
Friends, family and allies are welcome.
#PinkDotTO (Chinatown Pride March and Community Picnic) is organized by Asian Community AIDS Services (ACAS) and Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO). Special thanks to Scadding Court Community Centre and Market 707 for providing us with the space for the event!
