First & Foremost:
We would like to acknowledge and honour that all of the work we do is currently being done on unceded Algonquin Territory that was never given up and never surrendered.
A New Kind of Monthly!
Do you love craft beer but not down with the sexist & heteronormative culture that often comes with it? Do you like getting together with your community & meeting new friends? Are you tired of the club scene & want to have interesting conversation & try new things? Yes, yes and yes! So let’s get together and explore the craft brew scene here in Ottcity & create a safer space for queer & trans pub lovers!
How We Roll!
We pick a brewery each month. We show up, we drink, we snack, sometimes we will play games, we will get our growlers & pitchers filled & we will have FUN! Most importantly we will leave GLITTER bomb trails wherever we go!
Come with friends, come alone, come with a date, end up on a date, make new pals, talk to those you know, talk to those you don’t know but have always wanted to, or hey even keep to yourself, because it’s all good & do what makes you feel most comfortable! [This is an open-event so feel free to invite your pals!] o Must be 19+ (sorry to the youth in our communities, but don’t worry we will be sure to organize some youth & fam friendly events)!
o All genders & sexualities are welcome!
o The goal is to provide a fun & safer environment for enjoying craft beers & chatting with pals!
o Feedback, thoughts, suggestions are welcome! You can shoot us a message anytime! dillon: firstname.lastname@example.org
DOORS @6pm, but feel free to pop by when you can!
CW: abuse, intimate partner violence .
I’m still healing so I don’t know how much I can really say about this piece except that everyone has their reasons for staying in or leaving toxic relationships. The thing about abuse and manipulation is that it sticks with you long after it’s over. It tricks you into thinking things were okay when they really weren’t. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, but sometimes I still need a reminder not to go back to a place that felt like hell.
All that to say, I made this piece as as a reminder to myself, and I hope that maybe it can bring strength to survivors as well. I’m offering prints of this 8.5”x11” piece for $15 each or pay-what-you-can, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Youth Services Bureau Young Women’s Shelter. DM or email me (button on my profile) if you would like one and we can chat.
I’m so excited about this project and I can’t wait to share it with you. ♈️♉️♊️♋️♌️♍️♎️♏️♐️♑️♒️♓️
Got to draw this cutie cat for my lovely friend Rachel who is giving it to her friends Lindsay and Brittany at @dapperanddaring! These two do amazing work for Ottawa's LGBTQ+ population, go check out #DapperAndDaring if you haven't already! 🏳️🌈😻
I've been drooling over Jamie's (@bigboypinups / @jamie_august) work for awhile and now I have my very own Sassy Sailor 💁♂️⚓️😍 (A big shoutout to @danicadesjardins for helping fund the tattoo for my birthday and making the whirlwind trip to Toronto with me 😘) #bigboypinups#BBPU
Thank you @darbymichelleb for letting me make this adorable personal piece for you! 💕School's already started but I'm too busy avoiding my responsibilities, so let me know if there's something you'd like me to make for you! DM to discuss details 🌿🌻
