[BANNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A stylized black and white illustration of a phone receiver with triangles on the speakers. White text says "LESBIAN GAY BI TRANS YOUTH LINE". The illustration is slightly grainy with fold lines, like a worn poster. A pink ribbon curves out from behind the illustration and provides a backdrop to the event title in black text: "Dialing In: 30 years of 2SLGBTQ+ Activism". Below the title is smaller black and pink text that says: "In conversation with: Deb Cowen, Nik Redman, Bridget Liang, Caleb Wesley, Markus Harwood-Jones (moderator)". Smaller black text below that says: "Thursday, July 18, 2024, 6:30pm. Soulpepper Theatre, 50 Tank House Lane, Toronto." The entire image has a white background with a subtle grey gradient in one corner.]


Join team members and supporters, past and present, in an intergenerational celebration of LGBT YouthLine’s 30 years, and a reflection on the history of queer activism in Toronto. There will be a Q&A after the panel discussion as well as time for mingling.
