Via DalOut

We would like to bring your attention to two wonderful projects that are happening in the city.

On October 20, we, along with other members and supporters of the queer community, will be wearing purple in memory of the recent lives lost to homophobic bullying. Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, and Seth Walsh are just a few of the many youths who have recently taken their own lives as a direct result of homophobia and bullying.

At 4:00 pm on October 20, there will be a rally at Grand Parade outside City Hall. We hope you will join us in honouring their memory and standing up for our future. Let our youth know that it gets better.

If you are a member of Facebook, please RSVP at

Midwifery in Nova Scotia is at a crucial juncture. With the Department of Health set to release the provincial evaluation on midwifery implementation in November, we need to connect, share and plan for what comes next.

Join us for an afternoon of education, discussion and strategy planning.

Share your experiences. Have your voice heard. Listen to what others have to say. Learn about who has access to midwifery and who doesn’t.

Join a professionally-facilitated discussion and be part of developing a concrete action plan.

Children welcome, snacks provided!

NSRAP invites all LGBT people aged fifty plus to an Elders Potluck Social & Presentation on Sunday October 17 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Spencer House Senior Centre, 5596 Morris Street, Halifax.

Have you been putting off making a will? If you have a will, is it up to date to reflect your current partnership status? Have you a Living Will ensuring that the person you designate will make essential decisions if you became incapacitated? Is domestic partnership the same as marriage when it comes to inheritance? Questions LGBT seniors have about wills and inheritance will be addressed by lawyer Tuma Young.

The Social to follow will feature an LGBT potluck provided by the attendees. Please bring finger food - sandwiches, sweets, snacks, etc. Coffee and tea will be provided by NSRAP. This is an alcohol-free event. ASL translation will be provided for members of the Rainbow Deaf Community. For more information contact NSRAP at 444-3206 or email

When: Sun. Oct. 3, 7:30 p.m.
Get tickets: Call 902-423- 0419

In the meantime, you can read an excerpt of the book. That way you’ll sound super smart during the Q&A period.
