This is a group for LGBT+ to have an opportunity to meet for outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing in the Whitehorse, Yukon area. Visitors and locals welcome.
If you don't self identify as LGBT+, please respect the need for spaces for us and choose events/groups that do not have a mandate for supporting safe environments for self identified social minorities. Please join with a photo or I will email you and expect a response to ensure a respectful environment for everyone. Members inactive for more than a year will be deleted, just re-apply if you would like to be re-added.
We will choose most activities accessible to everyone with basic outdoor gear (i.e. summer overnight backpacking gear), and average (i.e. 10 km hike) fitness levels. Outdoor events won't generally occur in temperatures under -25C. Wherever reasonable, sharing gear with people who haven't accumulated it yet is encouraged to increase accessibility for all income levels. Activities will roughly alternate between more active (e.g. a hike) and less active (e.g. car camping) to have a variety of mobility options. That said, you have to be responsible for knowing your own limits and events can't always be adjusted once scheduled to accommodate everyone.
This is a casual group, not an organization. As such, we cannot be held responsible for any accidents or injuries that may happen at or occur as a result of events.
Events will be largely alcohol and drug free to help ensure a safe and healthy environment.
All ages, identities, orientations, etc. welcome. Please let me know if you would like to bring (LGBT+) guests, and email first.
Some ideas are a monthly back-country ski day on the weekends, a multi-day back country hiking trip in summer 2021, and a monthly local hike in the Whitehorse area.
This group is not affiliated with any religion, or specific first nation group. This also provides a list of activities in the Whitehorse area... cheers.
