According to the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA), 73 countries criminalize LGBTQI sexualities and identities. Some of those countries promote direct state-sponsored violence against LGBTQ2+ communities or turn a blind eye to oppression and persecution. Based on these realities, thousands of LGBTQ2+ identified peoples flee their countries seeking safety and freedom.

The LGBTQ2+ Refugee Program at the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto (MCC Toronto) has made a commitment to provide support, hope and safety those who have experienced or have a founded fear of persecution, violence or risk to their lives based on their gender identity, gender expression and/or sexuality.

Help us help them. Tickets cost $50 each. Online sales are now closed.
