Queer Family: An [Art]iculation
This display of art made by and about queer families is the result of Dalhousie Social Anthropology Masters thesis research conducted by Matt Cottrell (they/them) in 2023 - 24. All artists are featured based on their self-definition as members of a queer family, a term often used to encompass 2SLGBTQIA+ and polyamorous people.
These artworks are an expression of queer kinships, created and displayed in the hopes that they will communicate to the viewer that queer kinships are vital and loving. There is power in being seen in public; thank you to all who take the time to view and connect with this art.

But wait, there’s more! Don’t miss the Wet Things Pool Party at the Atlantica’s pool (2nd floor) prior to Bear Ball. Due to hotel policy, only hotel guests may attend this super fun pool party.
Tickets go on sale March 18th.

Bi & Beyond Mixer
No matter your relationship preferences or the type of connection you are looking for, THIS is the event for you. Mix and mingle with like-minded people and see where the conversation goes. Meet 2S/LGBTQIA+ 'singles' from across Nova Scotia.
Do you know what a Lock & Key Mixer is? Before you start balking at the thought of a 70’s throwback and a very large bowl filled with everyones keys, I'm sorry to say this is not that kind of event... ;) Lock and Key is a really straight forward way to make sure everyone mingles without the need for awkward silences. In a nut shell, half of the room gets keys and the other half gets locks. Meet as many people as you can and see if your lock and key are a match. If the lock opens the lucky couple will come to us and be entered into a draw for the potential to win the door prize. You then get either a lock or key (the opposite of what you had last time) and away you go again.
Tickets: $30 + taxes/fees. This event is 25+. More details can be found on the ticket site.
Location: The Women's Council House, 989 Young Ave
