This is an inaugural kick-off to raise funds needed for the #ENDhatelaws campaign. Come join us for an evening of performances by Lucas Silveira from The Clicks, Troy Jackson, Amy Kate, Ryan G. Hinds, ManChyna, Nari, Donnarama and more.
We will also be having a silent auction with amazing prizes for you to bid on including a painting by artist Marcel Dzama, a package from Inside Out LGBT Film Festival, a vibrator and more coming.

#ENDhatelaws is a new coalition of activists, journalists, educators, artists, lawyers and students in partnership with the Canadian HIV AIDS Legal Network and Ryerson University. We are building a national movement to fight the homophobia and transphobia that is creating fear for many LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex) people across the globe.
LGBTI people are criminalized in more than 80 countries, some that call for the death penalty. We will not keep quiet until the violence that is being inflicted on members of our global community finally stops. #ENDhatelaws has lots of exciting plans for actions leading up to Toronto WorldPride in June. We want to get t-shirts and buttons made. There are also registration fees for the Pride Parade and the WorldPride Human Rights Conference, and we need materials to make our banners, signs, business cards, flyers and other promotional materials.
