ON DRUGS AND ALCOHOL
Consuming alcohol and drug use in public spaces is an offence, however it is tolerated at Christie Pits. If you are going to drink/get high, we ask that you be responsible for yourselves and mindful of other attendees. If you want to drink/get high at the event, please be discreet. Also, be aware that some people might have asthma or allergies, which can make it difficult for them to be around smoke.
OurSpace is a collective of young, gay/bi/queer, cis and trans guys working to create spaces where young guys who like guys can come together as a community. That said, we recognize the value that allies bring to our lives and many of our community spaces. For this particular event, we encourage the attendance of allies, including straight and/or cis folks.
OurSpace is a Toronto-based collective of youth leaders who create innovative spaces for young guys who like guys to come together, learn from each other, discuss social issues, and have fun! Through interactive workshops, discussion groups, and social events, we strive to empower each other with the knowledge, skills, and networks necessary to support our overall health and well-being.
