This is EPIC.
Launched on On International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, (IDAHOTB) 2022, this is Canada's first organization dedicated for LGBTQ2S+ Indo-Caribbean people. Proudly presented by the Indo-Caribbean Canadian Association.
On a day established to take a stand against violence, hate, and discrimination directed toward people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, or expressions, we are proud to launch a standalone initiative by a Canadian Indo-Caribbean organization specifically dedicated to supporting a safe space for Indo-Caribbean LGBTQ2S+ community members.
EPIC will be chaired by Reshad Ali. A diversity and inclusion leader, Reshad comes from an Indo-Caribbean household, and will bring his expertise, experience and talent to this new initiative.
Join us as we come together as allies and LGBTQ2S+ community members, to listen, share experiences, break down barriers and celebrate love in all forms.
