Métis 2SLGBTQIA+ Gathering

The Rupertsland Institute (RLI) is thrilled to extend an invitation to you for the groundbreaking Métis 2SLGBTQIA+ Gathering, taking place on April 11-12, 2024, in Edmonton (amiskwaciwâskahikan), Alberta at the Edmonton Expo Centre.

Partnering with the Otipemisiwak Métis Government Youth department and the Edmonton 2 Spirit Society, this historic event marks the inaugural gathering of its kind, providing a vital space for Métis and other Indigenous 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals to come together; fostering open dialogue, education, and community building within our diverse community.

In our commitment to amplify Indigenous voices, our communications team has partnered with pipikwan pêhtâkwan, an Indigenous-owned public relations firm, to craft branding that honors the essence of this event.

Additionally, we are excited to announce that RLI has joined forces with Jelly Marketing, a Métis-owned digital marketing firm based in Vancouver, BC, to livestream the event. This ensures that those unable to attend in person can still participate and engage with the gathering’s invaluable discussions and presentations. Please note that only April 12 will be livestreamed.

We eagerly anticipate your presence at this momentous occasion, where we will collectively celebrate and elevate the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
