QNEWS FLOOD RELIEF & BILLET PROGRAM

People need your help, many are under water and they need somewhere safe to stay for a few days.  Emergency shelters are not always welcoming to trans, gay and lesbians especially couples.

QNews has had a few calls already asking for help and ideas, so we are runiing a billiting program. Most other GLBTIQ organmisations are closed or on reduced staff at this time so we are trying our hardest to help people but need your help please!
