Helen Kennedy speaks about how many countries in the commonwealth still consider homosexuality a crime.

An LGBTQ social organization for people working in the broader legal community held its first event on Jan. 26 in Toronto.

The event took place at Stori Aperitivo Bar and a portion of the proceeds were donated to Egale Canada Human Rights Trust, an organization that works to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people in Canada.

Helen Kennedy, executive director of Egale Canada, and Ontario Court Justice Harvey Brownstone were guest speakers for the evening. “This organization is going to bring together all the professions in the legal world,” says Justice Harvey Brownstone.
