Len & Cub: A Queer History

We are honoured and excited to be able to showcase the story of Len & Cub: A Queer History. Authors Dusty Green and Meredith J. Batt will be at the River Arts Centre on Main Street in Florenceville-Bristol on Saturday June 22nd at 2:00pm to discuss their book.

Queer history has existed since there were humans, but most often, that history was ignored and not recorded. To have documents which allows us to glimpse Queer love, not just as words on a page, but images that express love, is a true gift.

There will be a presentation and a short reading. Limited books will be available for sale.

Seating is limited.

A Family friendly Potluck Picnic

As our very first month-long Pride celebrations come to a close, join us for a family-friendly safe space at our Pride Potluck Picnic.

Bring along your favourite food to share and something to serve it with, grab a blanket or chair, the kids and sunscreen and don't forget your chosen family & friends to make this a fun-filled and inclusive event.

We will supply the plates, cutlery, cups and beverages.

We will be starting at 12:00pm Noon until 2:00pm, and you are welcome to stay and play longer.

There is a playground to use and washrooms are close by.
