Wayves is a volunteer collective created by readers like you, so if you think there should be something in Wayves, write it up and send it! Wayves is always looking for queer-related news, reviews, and events, and especially photos. If you're not sure, email and ask -- we don't bite!

This encyclopedia contains the Nova Scotia portion of the Wayves' GroupsAndServices database.
