We are The 519, your community centre. And together, there’s no going backwards.

For nearly 50 years, we’ve relentlessly fought alongside our communities, advocating for our rights and building a better world for 2SLGBTQ+ people. We’ve been by your side, fighting inch by painstaking inch, for safe spaces, legal protections, and moments of acceptance and affirmation.

This shared history is a testament to the power of community action. But the fight isn’t over. In a way we have not seen for many years, a rising anti-2SLGBTQ+ backlash seeks to send our progress backwards.

Our communities won’t go backwards. Our past victories fuel and inspire us, but retro has no place in 2SLGBTQ+ rights.

Together we’re asking you not just to help fight back, but to generously power this fight forwards. Forwards towards a world where every 2SLGBTQ+ person is loved, safe, and connected to their community.

Your support amplifies our critical everyday work to advance the rights of 2SLGBTQ+ communities. Thank you!
