  • to undertake educational outreach services on LGBTQ issues for the community at large

  • to offer referral services to individuals who need support and comfort
  • to generally help encourage a positive and visible LGBTQ presence in the community

There are events to enjoy, justice issues to work on, committees to join and jobs that need doing. We celebrate Pride with a weekend-long festival on the weekend following Labour Day every September. Board meetings are held every month. We welcome your participation in any aspect of the society.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”CHECK OUT OUR EVENTS” style=”custom” custom_background=”#50286f” custom_text=”#ffffff” shape=”round” align=”left” css_animation=”fadeInLeft” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fdaissi.org%2Fevents%2F|title:daissi%20events||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1934″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” css_animation=”fadeInRight” css=”.vc_custom_1499810827532{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
