Friends of Ruby is pleased to announce
the inaugural Ruby Gala for 2SLGBTQIA+
youth, aged 16-29

on Saturday, June 17, 2023, at Artscape Daniels Launch Pad.

Cadillac Fairview is the Blue Zen Relax Zone Sponsor of the Ruby Gala. Inside the Ruby Gala, 2SLGBTQIA+ youth will be able check out the Blue Zen Relax Zone when they need a break from dancing to the live DJ, or to chill out and enjoy the free food and unique Ruby mocktails* at this unforgettable evening of entertainment and fun. 

2SLGBTQIA+ youth face disproportionately high rates of family rejection, violence, homelessness, and trauma leading to high rates of anxiety, depression, suicidality, and other mental health issues. This is one of the reasons why Friends of Ruby has created the Ruby Gala because we believe that everyone deserves a red-carpet moment when they get to feel like the most special person in the universe.

The Ruby Gala will celebrate 2SLGBTQIA+ youth for who they are – in all their diversity and uniqueness – at a glamorous and free experience, designed exclusively for youth.

As one of the one of the honoured positions as Charity of Choice for Pride Toronto 2023, Friends of Ruby has set the bold and necessary goal of raising $1 million for our Momentum for 2SLGBTQIA+ Youth Mental Health campaign by December 31, 2023.
