The International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia Gala

The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity, formerly Jer’s Vision, is celebrating the International Day Against Homophobia  & Transphobia with our Annual Gala!

The event will bring together 250 guests to Toronto to celebrate the work our community has done across Canada to address heterosexism & cissexism. Join our host Al Ramsay, Andre Morriseau and Kelly Kyle, alongside key community and business leaders from throughout Canada for an incredible dinner & show. The event will feature performances from Gavin Crawford, and many more.

Award winners will be announced March 2017.

The gala opens with a reception at 6:30PM, with the dinner beginning at 7:15PM.
The gala is being held at The Bram & Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library and catered by EnVille. Wine is being graciously provided by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, and beer is generously provided by Beau’s Beer.

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.
