Where does the money raised go?
The International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia Gala will be funding two major programs offered by the CCGSD.
The first is our national Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Forum, a week-long conference to train LGBTQ+ and Allied youth on combating bullying and discrimination in their schools. The second program is our Regional Youth Conferences, one day conferences held in regions across Canada on bullying and discrimination.
Thank you for your generous support.
