UNBSJ’s True Colours held their first event of the semester last Friday night, an LGBTQ2+ Mixer at Colonel Tucker’s campus bar. It was a fun-filled event with snacks, card games, and a photo booth.
Attendees wore rainbow leis and competed in water pong. They also had a suggestion box for ideas about future events and general suggestions.
When asked about how the event went, Social Media Coordinator Grace O’Brien says, “I think it went amazing!” She expressed excitement and pride about what True Colours has planned for the future.
Their to-do list includes hosting a workshop on ally-ship for those who, as explained by O’Brien, “might want to be allies but might not know how.”
O’Brien states that True Colours aims for inclusivity, and that their main goal is to create a safe space on campus for all students. They are working with UNBSJ’s counsellors to ensure that they can provide a positive environment for our LGBTQ2+ community and allies.
True Colours encourages everyone to participate in their events and workshops. You can find them on their Facebook page, “True Colours” or follow @truecolours.unbsj19 on Instagram for more information!
