Our Cafés causeries are discussions on a different topic each month, open to everyone and sometimes featuring a guest speaker. Our midi-ZOOM events are perfect for those who want to squeeze a bit of learning and sharing into their work day!

Other Activities

February 9th and 23rd, 4pm-7pm.

Are you a senior who’d like to forge intergenerational links with the community’s youth, break isolation and take part in a fun activity? Do you know someone who would be interested? Join us at our Crocheting the Rainbow event! You can learn to crochet packers and breastforms, two items that help trans, non-binary and questioning people live authentically and comfortably in their own bodies.

You’re welcome at any level of experience, even if you’ve never crocheted before! There’s nothing to bring: all materials are generously provided in partnership with Tricot Thé Serré. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

We’d especially like to thank Horizon pour les ainés: their financial support makes this project possible.

We’ll be swearing in your name and gender change applications from 1 to 6 pm on February 16th!

You can make an appointment to have your name and/or sex marker change request sworn in at any time by contacting services@transestrie.org.

On February 21st, from 5 to 8 pm, come spend an evening playing various board games at TransEstrie! We have our own games, but we encourage you to bring your own to share your favorite games.

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn how to create a Dungeons & Dragons character! Our guest Neo will introduce you to this role-playing game that is booming in popularity. No previous knowledge necessary.

Axel Roy will host an art/writing workshop on November 14th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Axel Roy invites the community to create together, through writing and art workshops. These activities are intended as a queer-friendly space for self-expression, sharing and listening, without judgment, in a spirit of kindness. The workshop begins with a round of introductions for those interested, followed by a moment of creation and, finally, the sharing of creations on a completely voluntary basis. All materials provided!

⚠️ Masks are available, and wearing them is strongly encouraged for everyone’s health! Please do not participate in the activity if you have symptoms of the flu or COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with someone with symptoms.

♿ Accessibility: the venue is on the first floor, with a step at the entrance. Axel favors a low noise level. The lights are neon, but will be able to be adjusted/softened as needed. It is always possible to arrive or leave the activity at any time. Please contact Axel to express your needs.
