Wellness Wind Down

Come wind down from the week in a queer-friendly, virtual space every Thursday from 3pm-4:30pm. The Weekly Wellness Wind Down is a collaboration project with queer-friendly counsellor, Janet Miller, from Wellness Services on Campus. Students will gather weekly to wind down from the week, chat and hang out in a supportive setting. Students will be able to decide what they need from the space each week that they attend.

Here’s the link to join!

Crafternoon

Crafternoon is back- with a twist for fall semester! Each Crafternoon will be hosted through this link.

While we will be offering ten pre-made craft bags each week for contactless pick up in reception
on a first-come, first-serve basis- we also wanted to provide a full craft list for those who would
like to purchase their own materials, would like to order online in advance, or those who are
simply just curious!

See the full craft list here.

Games Day

Games day is back on Tuesdays from 1-3pm. Students will be able to meet up online, and play games together to build community and socialize outside of the centre. Here’s the link that will be used!

Queer ‘n’ Tell

Come listen to other students share what resources helped them along their queer journey, such as agencies, books, zines, and programs the last Wednesday of every month from 3:00-4:00 pm. We’ll engage in a discussion after each presentation. Here’s the link to join!

Have a resource you’d like to share with your community? Email pridecentre@samru.ca to submit to the Relationship, Identity, and Sex (RIS) Programmer. All resources presented are required to be rooted in some sort of evidence, and approved by the RIS programmer prior to presenting. This is to ensure that topics follow accountable spaces guidelines and are appropriate for the group (no hate speech, trigger warnings in place if needed, etc).

Building the Love You Want: Creating and Sustaining Love

This 4-week program is for those who want to deepen their capacity to connect with self and others. Within an online format, through facilitated group discussions and reflective exercises we will explore what intimate relationships and connections means for you.

Whether you are navigating dating, in a long term relationship, or have had a relationship end, all are welcome. This program has been developed to help support you in identifying your needs and values to support who you are in your intimate relationships and connections.

Cozy-up with some tea and your computer each week and spend this time on you as you identify the type of relationships you want in your life. This will be a closed group held over GoogleMeets. Participants are asked to attend each session. Those who attend all four sessions will receive a certificate of completion.

Please email Cari (cionson@mtroyal.ca) or Sarah (s.armstrong@samru.ca) to receive registration forms. Registration deadline is September 22, 2020 at 5:00 pm.

Gender Affirming Clothing Swap

The Gender Affirming Clothing Swap is back, and we’re going online! Check out the “Gender Affirming Clothing Swap album on our Pride Facebook group for clothing options, and then message RIS Programmer Sarah at s.armstrong@samru.ca with your choices and to receive contactless pick-up instructions. It’s that easy.

We will not be accepting donations other than binders and bras (due to need) for the fall semester. We currently have a large amount of clothing that we will need to go through first, and these clothes have also been quarantined over the summer. Binders and Bras will be quarantined for 14 days prior to distributing.
