Coming Out Monologues: We're so there!

We are pleased to be taking part in the "Coming Out Monologues" this week at the University of Calgary.

The Coming Out Monologues are three celebratory evenings of the LGBTQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-gendered, transsexual, queer, ally) community. The three performances will be at the UofC in Craigie Hall on March 13, 14 and 15, with each night being a different performance. We'll be there with a booth each night - so drop by to say hello!
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at , with 50% of proceeds go towards the Calgary Sexual Health Centre. We are thrilled to be supported by this event!
