Gaymes Night/Gaycation

What is a gaymes night? Glad you asked! "Gaymes Night" is a bi-weekly board/card/Wii game playing event organized by Queer McGill. We have a ton of games to play: Monopoly, Twister, Jenga, Settlers of Catan, Mario Kart, and so much more! This is a great time to meet some fun queer folk and make ALL the friends. We provide snacks and laughs, good times and good people. We look forward to seeing you all there!
This event alternates weekly with showings of Gaycation episodes. Gaycation is a television series produced by Viceland starring Ellen Page and Ian Daniel that explores what it's like to be queer around the world. After the episode, stick around to chat about the episode, being queer, or whatever your heart desires! To check what is offered on a weekly basis, head to the QM Facebook.

Neurodiversity Working Group

No two brains are the same, but they're all wonderful in their own way, and they all deserve respect and the opportunity to flourish! This working group will take the form of a peer support group of people who live at the intersection of neurodiversity/mental illness and queerness, and will be a place for sharing tips and resources, and telling stories. Discussion topics will include what it means to be a neurominority and how to talk about it, what barriers we face and how we can overcome them, how to make QM and McGill more accessible, and exploring tools for healing, self understanding and self advocacy.
