On August 4 - 7, Peace Arch Campground will be hosting a free camping weekend on the extreme south shore of Nova Scotia.
Wayves interviewed the organizer, KC, currently en route from BC.
Why a free camping event? Why am I doing this event? Because I am Trans and I want to share my place with others amongst the community. All are welcome -- the event is sponsored by Halifax Pride.
Everyone in our community is on some budget. Here's a list of free things to do in HRM this summer. Thank you to Andy Fillmore, Member of Parliament for Halifax, for the research.
In June 2017, Wayves interviewed Riverside Campground owner Dennis Douglas.
Did you camp as a child? What was it like? Did you camp after you came out as gay? I camped all the time as a child. And used to camp at gay campgrounds in Ontario, and The Mermaid And The Cow Campground, right around the corner in Scotsburn. It's now closed.
"Ils sont" is a French-language picture book by New Brunswick singer-songwriter Michel Thériault that approaches the topic of homosexuality for a younger audience."
