QTBIPOC sauga is a grassroots gathering of queer and trans, Black, Indigenous and people of colour (QTBIPOC) communities from across Peel.
We began in January 2016 as a way of addressing the lack of spaces dedicated to QTBIPOC people in Peel. Since then, little has changed in terms of spaces for QTBIPOC folks.
We host monthly meetups (virtual due to COVID-19). In the past, we have held monthly meetups (location not shared publicly due to safety concerns) where community members can connect, share food, and build community. QTBIPOC sauga has held meetups in Brampton as well! We have organized events including panels, workshops, performance events and more. We also advocate locally.
We are not a non-profit organization, but a grassroots group.
