Rainbow Lunch Club
Chroma’s Rainbow Lunch Club is a continuation of what was created at Adoringly Shire – a safe drop-in space for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth and allies to gather, eat, laugh, and enjoy each other’s company. Chroma staff provide a welcoming and supportive space, and lunch is always provided at no charge. Located in the basement of InterAction School of Performing Arts, our new space is open Monday Tuesday Thursday and Friday ,from 12pm-3pm (closed Wednesdays unless posted otherwise) and is every bit as cozy as the Shire was. To enter, come to the side door of InterAction at 228 Germain Street and ring the doorbell. To keep up to date with future events and news, follow @rainbowlunchclub on Instagram and Facebook.
2b Chest Binder Donation Distribution
Chroma is a partner of gc2b, a trans owned, designed, and operated company committed to providing accessible, comfortable, and safe and affirming wear for all bodies. Their 2b donation program allows us to give out chest binders to folks who otherwise don’t have access to them. We do this through a regularly posted online order form, with pick-up locations in Saint John and Fredericton, and the ability to mail to other locations in NB.
Update May 2023: Chroma started its partnership with The Kindness Closet, a thrift boutique with a vision to make the world more kind. The partnership has found a new home for Chroma’s chest binders and Chroma’s Binder Library. This change to a new space has allowed more opportunity for rainbow folks to access the garments, try on the garments, and take home any that are available.
