New LOFT Program receives City of Toronto 2017 Pride Award
On December 4, 2017, the City of Toronto Access, Equity and Human Rights Awards were presented at Toronto City Hall. The AEHR Awards recognize people who, or programs that, have made a difference in Toronto by reducing discrimination and barriers to equality.
LOFT was honoured to receive the 2017 Pride Award for LBGTQ and Two-Spirit Issues presented in recognition of the new BLOOM transitional gender program, launched in June of this year.
BLOOM is an innovative and ground-breaking housing program and networking group supporting trans people – statistically one of the most marginalized and oppressed populations.
