As Director of Equity Groups for the Public Service Alliance of Canada, Quebec Region (PSAC-Quebec), I am pleased to announce that our organization will be sponsoring an entertainment area for children in connection with L’Astérisk’s Grand Challenge event on September 8. The idea is to make the event more accessible to parents who would like to take part in the races while enjoying peace of mind.
About the event
The Dragon Boat Grand Challenge is a friendly sporting competition held to raise funds for L’Astérisk. The purpose is to offer friends and colleagues from LGBTQ+ communities a chance to connect in an atmosphere of friendly competition while contributing to young people’s personal growth and overall health. The event also provides an opportunity to socialize and network in a festive and relaxed setting.
About the organization
L’Astérisk offers a bilingual, non-commercial space for bringing together lesbian, gay, bisexual, non-binary, queer and questioning youth aged 14 to 25 and promoting awareness.
Bullying at school because of sexual orientation or gender identity too often pushes young people who are questioning their sexual identity outside the network of traditional youth organizations. L’Astérisk is the only non-commercial space for youth exploring sexual and gender diversity in Montreal.
I invite PSAC-Quebec members to participate in this extraordinary activity.
