"At 10 a.m. on November 24th, 2012 our adventurous passengers will board a big accessible school bus for a daylong event of engagement, discussion and involvement in queer community. ‘Bussed Out’ will proudly travel the city in full regalia stopping at LGBTTIQQ2SAP spaces, services, and organizations all over Victoria. At each stop participants will be oriented to the space and then a workshop, discussion presentation or spontaneous event will take place.
Throughout the day, both on and off the bus, the activities will invite us to consider our thoughts, feelings and perspectives about being queer and how we relate to the larger community. We will explore themes of diversity and inclusion, apathy and barriers toward building queer community. The Bus Stops include; basements and bathrooms, forests and fountains, lunch rooms and classrooms, and more!!"

Bussed Out!?#% was the first of many Queerposium events. Queerposium strives to bring together queer folk from all walks of life to engage in community building activities that range from discussion, workshops, presentations, meditation, small group activities and socializing in an inclusive atmosphere, in Victoria, BC.
Queerposium is the brain child of Creating Connections, a monthly LGBTTIQQ2SAP social meeting open to all ages, genders, orientations and cultures and their allies. We meet every 19th of the month at 7pm at the AVI office at 713 Johnson St. 3rd Floor Victoria, BC.
