After some careful thought and consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2SLGBTQQIA+ Wellness Gathering.
We want to thank those who have registered for this event and offer our regrets for the cancellation of this gathering.
With some reflection, we can see some better ways to go about these types of events, such as planning more in advance to allow ample time for voices and folks to be included in the planning process.
The YES Program aims to support Syilx Nation members who are dealing with the impacts of family violence. The 2SLGBTQQIA+ Wellness Gathering creates space for Nation members to gather to discuss the roles and responsibilities in keeping our communities safe and healthy. It is a safe space for folks to share openly and to discuss 2SLGBTQQIA+ issues freely, developing a spirit of comradery and nationhood.
The 2SLGBTQQIA+ Wellness Gathering is an important event for folks to come together to look at Syilx and personal wellness. This will be an inclusive space that all individuals in attendance can find support, gain some inspiration, look at self-care and talk about how we can start addressing specific challenges that impact our 2SLGBTQQIA+ community.
