There are often people who ask us what an abused relationship looks like. There is a common assumption that abuse only happens in the context of a male/female relationship, but there are truly multiple forms of abuse that individual womyn can suffer at the hands of men, women, relatives, strangers or friends. Our services know no boundaries and it is important to acknowledge that when we mention that we support womyn, this includes anyone who identifies as female, lesbian, transgendered or any other acknowledgement that best represents who they are.
Recently we had the great pleasure of meeting two dynamic and engaging community members named Travoy and Venus who are throwing a fantastic event: The 3rd Annual First Lady’s Ball, presented by event producer TravoyintheFlesh, otherwise known as Mother Monroe of the House of Monroe. Travoy and Venus explained that anyone can participate in this dynamic evening spotlighting confident and bold contestants who will strut their stuff in front of an expert judging panel to compete for prizes in various categories throughout the evening ranging from runway struts to vogue, which is an exciting and very stylized type of dancing/posing. The idea is to bring the LGBTQ community together to celebrate all womyn inside and out, while raising money for a good cause. This year we are honoured to have been chosen as the recipient charity of the Lady’s Ball raffle proceeds.
So put on your best outfit, channel your inner diva and join us on May 17th at 10pm at the Mojo Lounge for an evening of fabulousness!
