For Organizational Change
We offer In-person workshops and professional development, along with inclusion business audits and LGBTQ+ inclusive workspace training. So, we’ve got your organization’s beyond binary education and training covered.
Our expert team will empower you and your team with the skills and language to take you beyond gender binary bias so that you can create a truly inclusive space that’s welcoming to all.
Our ongoing, bi-weekly, head-on conversation about current affairs & real-life stories about gender-based issues affecting trans and non-binary youth, students, and adults, within our Maritime LGBTQ+ community and across Canada.
We take on difficult topics and bust some myths, so we can foster a greater connection between those who identify as cisgender and those who identify as trans, gender creative and non-binary – to create more inclusive communities.
Communities where everyone feels included and safe to be their true selves.
The Pink Balloon Children’s Book
Give a gift that celebrates and embraces the diversity of gender identity and expression this Holiday Season.
Co-written & beautifully illustrated in Nova Scotia – a wonderful local addition to any child’s library!
“Somewhere near the seaside, a child named Briar is about to be born. But, Briar’s story has already begun when a pink balloon floats surprisingly out of a box.
Inspired by a true story, this is a heartwarming journey of a new family, a balloon, and a child who shows the world it is what’s on the inside that counts the most.
