Our City of Colours, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of LGBTQ communities in all cultures, is hosting its launch party in Vancouver on Tuesday, May 22.

Founded in March 2011, the organization was born out of a desire to portray LGBTQ people of all cultural backgrounds in a positive light.

Darren Ho, chair and founder of OCC, notes, “Some languages don’t even have a word for gay, lesbian, or trans. We want to change that.”

The event will allow community members, new supporters, members, and volunteers of all cultures to mix and mingle with others interested in the organization’s cause. It will take place at YouthCO’s office located at #205-568 Seymour Street from 7pm to 9pm.
