TheQueerGarden

pic A queer outdoor socializing space (19+) available by appointment only. Opened in July, 2021

ErinDelorey? (she/her), JustinChevrette? (he/him), & MichaelScaife? (he/him) all best friends, decided to pilot their vision of a safe and positive queer space in Halifax. The three of us put our food and beverage talents together and created the space we called the Queer Garden. A complete grass roots project in our backyard, located in the North End of Halifax.
