Members of Ottawa’s queer community came out in full force Thursday, May 30, for the ninth edition of Swirl and Twirl.
Founded in 2003 by Mario Larochelle, the annual event is a fundraiser for local queer charities and organizations.
This year’s beneficiaries included Bruce House, Jer’s Vision, Pink Triangle Services (PTS) and the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights.
>Attendees sampled a wide selection of vino, nibbled tasty treats and bid on items up for grabs in a silent auction.
Co-organizer Denis Schryburt says an exact figure of funds raised at this year’s edition will be determined next week.
