The BBBST ! AM Initiative

We recognize the importance of language, and its impact on inclusivity and identity erasure. We acknowledge how our organizational name re-enforces the gender binary and fails to honour Trans, non-binary and gender diverse identities and we are actively advocating for change. We welcome mentors and mentees who are 2SLGBTQIA+, and we are proud to have 2SLGBTQIA+ staff leading our ! AM initiative – developing intentional and inclusive programs for mentees and mentors of the community.

We’re thrilled to be part of this vibrant event! At BBBST, we cherish diversity and inclusion, recognizing the beauty and strength that arise when we come together as a community, embracing our differences and celebrating our shared humanity. 

We invite you to stop by our booth to learn more about our ! AM Initiative and commitment to fostering meaningful relationships and creating a safe, inclusive space for all. Join us in creating some artwork to represent the diversity of the queer community in Toronto. Let’s celebrate love in all its forms and spread kindness and acceptance wherever we go!
