Programming for June 23 2017 – UPDATED!
UPDATE: Read the post following the first!
At the previous ODE night we discussed programming during Toronto Pride. A lot of folks wished to walk in the parade on Sunday, instead of having a drop-in on Friday night.
Friday night we do not have access to the 519 community kitchen for INIDE. And the 2-Spirit office for ODE on that Friday is also unavailable.
Other options, besides walking in the Parade, are attending the 2-Spirited People of the 1st Nations picnic on Saturday June 24th at Fife House. Or attend the Fort York Pow Wow, also on Saturday June 24th.
Please let us know what your thoughts are, and what would work best for y’all. A final decision will be decided by the end of Wednesday. Any questions or for more information please contact Teddy At Ode and/or Jacob At Ode.

ODE Program/PRIDE Update:
Tonight’s drop-in has been cancelled. ODE programming will be us marching in the Pride Parade on Sunday, with the 2-Spirit/Queer-Trans Indigenous group.
Folks have the choice of going to the 12pm ceremony at the Alexander Parkette, besides Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. Or at OAHAS at 11:30 am at 7 Hayden Street, between Yonge and Church Street. For more information please contact Jacob At Ode, Amica or Teddy At Ode.
Folks will have two options, before lining up for the parade. Anyone who wishes to participate in the opening ceremonies, at the Alexander Parkette by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre for 12:00pm can do so. Jacob At Ode will be there.
The other option, is for folks who want to chill away from any big crowds, can meet at the OAHAS office at 7 Hayden Street at 12:00pm. Teddy At Ode will be at OAHAS.
Snacks will be provided during the parade and when we all line up.
