THUNDER BAY – The North Star Triangle Project (NSTP) will include Thunder Bay as part of its 21-city national tour. NSTP is a volunteer effort to educate and mobilize Canadian Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender communities about GLBT/Queer refugees in the world. It is a cross-Canada tour to promote “Group of 5” sponsorships.
The Canadian government has expressed concern over the persecution of GLBT people in the world. Canadian GLBT persons have an opportunity to help gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people around the world through sponsorships and a federal government sponsored pilot project.
Everyone is invited to attend the Thunder Bay event on Tuesday, April 26th from 7:00 to 8:30 PM to meet David Pepper. David is a long-time gay activist from Ottawa who is travelling across Canada to raise awareness about GLBT refugees and promote the idea of sponsorships.

The North Star Triangle Project is linking up individuals and communities from across Canada to mobilize around the humanitarian disaster of refugees.
In particular, GLBT refugees from Uganda to Iran to Colombia face real and present danger. The North Star Triangle Project will allow people to find out more about what is happening in Canada and how to help around the world.
Thunder Bay will be the 7th of his 21 city tour across Canada between April and July 2011.
