Strut Vancouver and Rainbow Refugee Society offer a lifeline to oppressed LGBT people

We acknowledge that for thousands of years the Snuneymuxw people have walked gently on the unceded territories where we now live, work and play. We seek a relationship with the first peoples here based in honour and respect, and we thank them for their hospitality.
