From NSRAP Board
NSRAP Regrets to announce the postponement of Fruits of the Vine wine-tasting fundraiser, originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 15, to a future date. We thank those who supported the event and all pre-purchased tickets will be refunded in full.
We are proceeding with plans for our annual Gala, which will take place on February 7th, 2015 at the Halifax Marriot Harbourfront Hotel, with a refreshed format. Further details will follow, but we suggest you mark your calendars for this event.
The Gala will help to fund the ongoing activities of NSRAP, including improving access to culturally competent care for LGBTQ elders, continued advocacy for improvement to access to health services for the trans community, ending the ban on blood donations by gay and bisexual men, recording our communities' history, addressing issues around gender markers on identity documents and hosting community events.
Thank you all.
