Men's Issues Charity CAFE Walks in Today's Gay Pride Parade

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 20, 2015) - The Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE), a national men’s issues educational charity, will walk in today’s York Region Gay Pride Parade as part of York Pride Fest 2015. CAFE is a human rights and gender equality organization. Its mandate, especially with respect to same-sex families and gay men’s health, overlaps with that of the LGBT community.

"We are so excited to join today's celebration of acceptance, inclusion and gay rights," said CAFE Executive Director Justin Trottier. "Pride has always been at the forefront of new social justice causes that widen our sphere of support for the community. So this is an ideal time to announce that this summer our Canadian Centre for Men and Families will launch a new fathering program, with special resources and support for gay fathers and their families."

CAFE has been a leading advocate for inclusive public policies to support all victims of violence. Those often neglected include victims of domestic violence in same-sex relationships and male victims of female perpetrated violence.

CAFE operates the Canadian Centre for Men and Families, an open and inclusive men’s health and social support agency in downtown Toronto just outside the Toronto Gay Village at 152 Carlton St.

"Our Centre provides therapy, peer support and fathering programs to every kind of family and is an LGBT safe space run by volunteers and supporting people from the gay and lesbian community," said Trottier.
