LGBTQ2A Social Group
LGBTQ2A Social Group is an effort to provide meaningful connections, support, and networking opportunities to LGBTQ2-identifying or questioning members of the community—and the allies who love them—in a safe and respectful social environment.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month. Event pages are posted to the Borderland Pride Facebook page.
Participation in this group's activities is strictly confidential. Identifying participants, photography, and recording of our events is prohibited. Participation is also governed by our Ground Rules.
This initiative is hosted by Borderland Pride, in partnership with the United Native Friendship Centre and the Fort Frances Public Library.
Online Group Information
LGBTQ2A Social Group maintains a private and hidden Facebook group called Borderland Queers & Co., where community members can post questions, comments, or make connections for mutual support.
