This is a space founded by and for members of the community for QTIBPOCs (queer and trans, Indigenous, Black, and people of colour) in Edmonton, Alberta on Treaty 6 & Métis territory. We provide ongoing support for individuals who are seeking community and or struggling with their identities. As of November 2018, Shades of Colour is officially an APIRG! working group!
Through arts, writing, music, story sharing, and interactive workshops, we facilitate open and honest discussions to hold space for each other as we heal, grow and learn. We host meet-ups throughout the year at various locations around the city. White folks & non-LGBTQ POC can support Shades of Colour by becoming patrons, helping fundraise, and telling people about us!
