PRESENTATIONS

We love the work we do, and we love coming to visit you. Let’s do both. You can request for a presentation or workshop from the Gilbert Centre to be delivered in your organization! Presentations can range from HIV topics, HEP C, LGBTQ information, and Our Agenda: A Workshop on Gay and Bi Men’s Mental Health. Or, give us a challenge, we’ll do our best to create something just for you! Request for us to come in and present to your team.

SAFER SPACES

We’re all experts in our own thing. Maybe you’re an expert in mental health, or maybe it’s working with people who have disabilities, or maybe you’re the leader in education in Simcoe. We’re the LGBTQ experts, and our capacity building program is designed to help create trans-positive and LGBTQ accessible and inclusive services. Find out how we can help share a little bit of our expertise with you.
