The Village Street Social & Film Screening tonight at 7pm

Show your support at a Bank St BBQ and film screening
Gilmour, between Bank and O'Connor
Contact: Marcus McCann- marcus.mccann@capital.xtra.ca

Have a HEART; use your BRAIN; muster up some COURAGE as we sing along to help put Bank Street OVER THE RAINBOW

Because there's no place like home... have fun and support the Village Initiative.
We're taking over Gilmour Street off Bank for some food and a film screening of The Wizard of Oz.

Sing along or cuddle up with a neighbour.

Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and camp out on the street.

FREE event, with a suggested donation of $5 for the Village.

The Village Initiative is a group of concerned queers who want visual acknowledgment of the gay and trans community on Bank St, where many of us already live, work & play.

The Bank St BIA (business improvement area) won't commit to rainbow banners and has led the push to shove our event off Bank Street onto Gilmour, but we refuse to give up.

Show the BIA how much the queer community loves Bank St.Things you can do at a BBQ:*
Eat a hot dog* Meet your neighbours* Singalong to the Wizard of Oz* Dress up like Dorothy (or a friend of Dorothy)* Sign the petition* Hug your neighbours

Village t-shirts, undies and wearable stickers will be available for sale at the screening.
ALL proceeds go directly to the Village Initiative. T's and undies - $20 each; stickers in 26 different "types" - $2 each.

Come out, get involved and stand up for YOUR Street!
