Meet & Greet

When: Monday, June 23rd, 6:00 – 10:00 PM

Where: OPSEU Labour House (31 Wellesley St E, Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

Are you visiting Toronto for WorldPride 2014? Do you already live in Toronto and want to kick-start this year’s Pride festivities? Come join us for our Meet & Greet Pride Social, ORAD’s first major event of Pride Week!

At the Meet & Greet you can meet people who have travelled to Toronto for WorldPride as well as people who are already part of the ORAD community.

We will provide a printed Pride Guide for people new to the city and provide information about accessible events throughout World Pride. We will also have lots of fun games throughout the event.

All you need is a big smile and your best Pride attitude.

This event will take place at the OPSEU Labour House, 31 Wellesley Street East directly across from Wellesley Subway Station. (Accessible transportation instructions are included at the end of this event description.) The space is fully accessible, and this event is open to all-ages at no cover cost!

See you there!

***HAPPY WORLD PRIDE***
