The Queerottawa community is a *safe space* for Ottawa queers and queer friendlies to come together and support one another, weither it be for events, activism or to meet new people and get to know each other.
The term 'queer' is intended to be all-inclusive. If you're gay, lesbian, bi (even bi-curious), gay friendly, transgender, transexual, pansexual, omnisexual, divergent, non-divergent or whatever, welcome in! Have a gay-ol' time.

* SAFE SPACE *: a place where anyone can relax and be fully self-expressed, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, age, or physical or mental ability; a place where each person's self-respect and dignity are guarded and in turn, each is required to respect everyone else's.
