D+Q has made donations to several local non-profits on behalf of the Gay Reads, Indigenous Literatures, Strange Futures, and Teen Book Clubs.
On behalf of the Strange Futures book club, hosted by Helen Chau Bradley (Personal Attention Roleplay), we have donated $250 to AGIR Montreal, an autonomous non-profit organization, by and for the LGBTQIA+ migrant community living in Montreal. The next book club meeting takes place on Tuesday February 1st to discuss Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delaney. RSVP here and join via Zoom.
On behalf of the Gay Reads book club, hosted by Kathleen Fraser, we have donated $250 to the LGBTQ + Community Center of Montreal, which offers a common gathering place for organizations and individuals interested in improving the experience of homosexual and trans-identified persons. The next book club meeting takes place on Wednesday February 9th to discuss The Spectacular by Zoe Whittall. RSVP here and join via Zoom.
On behalf of the Indigenous Literatures book club, hosted by Tara McGowan-Ross (Nothing Will Be Different), we have donated $250 to Resilience Montreal, a non-profit day shelter offering food, a place to sleep, clean clothes, and support to anyone in need. The next book club meeting takes place on Wednesday February 16th to discuss The Prairie Chicken Dance Tour by Dawn Dumont. RSVP here and join via Zoom.
On behalf of the Teen book club, we have donated $250 to Projet 10, a meeting place and advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex, queer, trans, two-spirit, and questioning youth in Montréal, QC.
We hope you will seek out and support these and other local non-profits and that we'll see you at one of our book clubs this year!
