Rainbow Coffee is a City Wide Network of High School GSA’s in Saskatoon.
Queer Youth & Their Allies come together for support, friends and fun!
The group meets every Wednesday from 4:30 – 6:30 and is for school-aged youth who are queer (LGBTQ) and queer-friendly to come together and create a city wide network of allies. There’ll be free snacks provided! It’s a chance to hang out, chat, meet people, make friends and connections, and maybe plan some social events as a group.
We welcome all youth and adult allies to come together and make friends and connections. If you’re currently connected to a Gay-Straight Alliance or Human Rights, Diversity or Social Justice Club, we hope to see you there! If you wish your school had one, this is the perfect place to start making that a reality!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email Chandra at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 665-1224 or 1-800-358-1833.
