In Conversation

Hosted by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Our focus on intergenerational connections continues with the return of In Conversation, curated by leZlie lee kam and Ty Sloane. Moving to an online format this past year has allowed us to reach an audience well beyond our home in Toronto, and we continue to strengthen these long-distance connections as other in-person activities resume.

Buddies’ Youth / Elders Projects are an ongoing response to the need for building intergenerational spaces, conversations, and relationships in our queer community. The program launched in 2016 with a year-long project that culminated in the acclaimed theatrical production The Youth / Elders Project on Buddies mainstage, and continues with a regular program of community conversations, knowledge sharing, a podcast, and more.

Accessibility

If you require ASL-interpretation to attend these meetings, please let us know on the registration form, and we will do our best to coordinate interpretation (we will e-mail you in advance to confirm).
