This week we celebrate our community’s future leaders, go on a road trip with the Vancouver Men’s Chorus, and strut out stuff in a fundraiser for LGBTQ+ refugees.
LOUD Business presents the 7th annual LOUD Scholarships Gala (Jun 7) honouring this year’s scholarship recipients. In this record-breaking year, ten British Columbia students will receive university scholarships recognizing their contribution to the LGBTQ community.
The Vancouver Men’s Chorus are going on a Road Trip (Jun 10-18). Get a head start on your summer glow with the men of the Chorus as they sing and dance on down the road with classic car tunes and songs of the open road.
Walking a mile in heels isn’t easy, but living in fear of persecution for being LGBT+ is harder. The Foundation of Hope presents STRUT 2016 (Jun 11), a walk to raise funds and awareness for LGBT+ refugees. With a goal of $40,000, the funds will go towards badly needed services to assist LGBTQ people from countries where they are persecuted to come to Canada and be fully integrated into Canadian life.
