ACCESSIBILITY

*This is event is all ages and childcare will be provided on site.

*Trinity-St. Paul's is a wheelchair accessible venue. There is ramp access leading up to the front door with a push button door entrance.

*There will be three all gender bathrooms on the main floor. One bathroom is wheelchair accessible equipped with grab bars and a push button door entrance. All three bathrooms will have unscented soap and sharp containers.

*ASL interpretation services have been confirmed. We are also recruiting ASL volunteers to work with interpreters and support ASL correspondence among participants.

*A quiet room will be available all throughout the day for people to decompress, naps, and cool down. 

*This event is striving to be scent free. There will be multiple tablers and attendees present with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities who can and will get sick if exposed to chemical scents and fragrances such as perfumes, fragrant hair styling products, fragrant laundry detergents, etc. We will provide unscented hand soap in the bathroom and we will be using unscented cleaning products. We ask that tablers, participants and volunteers come scent-free. Please take a couple of minutes to read the following document about working towards being scent and fragrance free:http://www.brownstargirl.org/blog/fragrance-free-femme-of-colour-realness-draft-15

*This event will not be serving alcohol and we ask that people not consume alcohol or other substances on site. Folks who need drink or use other drugs prior to attending the event will not be turned away. 

*There will be snacks, coffee, tea served at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair. There will be vegan, gluten-free, nut-free options and ingredients listed with each food item.

*We will have support liasons on site to assist and provide support including active listening, ushering and corresponding with event organizers.

*We, as a collective, are committed to ensuring that the space we create is as safe and welcoming as possible. However, as the fair is held in a public community space that is shared with many other services as well the general public, we cannot guarantee an ideal space but will try our very best to minimize all potential harm and risk.
