This event takes place on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Musqueam people.
LGBTQ2I Night provides a safe and positive space for LGBTQ2I folks to learn about bike maintenance in a relaxed environment led by queer mechanics and volunteers.
Bring your own bikes and fix them with our tools, come with questions and ask away, or learn by watching other folks work on their bikes. Beginners are always welcome!
Want to just come and hang out with like-minded folks? That's cool too!
This event is entirely FREE to attend and there will be FREE pizza.
LGBTQ2I Night takes place the fourth Wednesday of the month with support from CiTR Radio 101.9FM and Discorder Magazine. Check our website or facebook page for cancellations.
The Bike Kitchen has moved! Check out our new space at 1896 East Mall (The ATCO trailer outside of East Mall).

>> Gender and sexuality will not be policed at this event. We ask that those who do not identify as part of the LGBTQ2I community to check out one of our other events.
>> Always ask what pronouns someone uses instead of making an assumption about their gender identity based on their appearance. You can simply ask «What pronouns do you use?» when you meet someone new.
>> Discrimination will not be tolerated, particularly but not exclusively regarding: race/ethnicity, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender presentation, gender identity, age, (dis)ability, economic/social class, physical appearance, body size, religion or asylum status.
>> We do not tolerate harassment, including: offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention and inappropriate language or behavior.
>> Participants should not discriminate against an individual based on the type, brand, physical appearance, or state of repair of an individual's bicycle.
The Bike Kitchen's new space is wheelchair accessible. There is a gravel path leading from East Mall to the ramp at the entrance of the Bike Kitchen. The ramp leading into the shop is 52 inches wide and the door is 33 inches wide. Sometimes a puddle forms on the ramp after heavy rains. We are working to address this issue and will post on the event page if a puddle forms before the event.
