NIGHT SHIFT started out as a late night online chat after the online coffee chat during isolation.
Back by popular demand, NIGHT SHIFT, lead by our Captain of Sober Supporters Rebecca, is for any BLGC members who want to chat with an intimate group of babes online. It’s an excellent opportunity to hang out with your sober babe squad and get to know folks with no pressure!
NIGHT SHIFT is #membersonly, which means you are welcome if you are a woman, trans or non-binary person who is a: sober, b: hopeful to become sober or c: interested in participating in sober events.
The BLGC has been requested to run a hang out specifically for Sober Parents. So that’s what we’re going to do!
From ‘mommy-juice’ aka wine to ‘rose all day’ to having alcohol always present at playdates to sporting events, there are definitive challenges for sober parents. With the societal norms surrounding parenthood and alcohol use, there is an increasing need for safer, sober spaces for parents to come together and share in their experience.
A Hang Out: Sober Parents Edition will be road-captained by Heather. It is open to all members who want to come and hang out (parents/caregiver or not), but the topics will be focused on the specific challenges and experiences that are present whilst being a sober parent or caregiver.
Join A Hang Out: Sober Parents Edition, November 10th from 7:30 – late on Zoom. RSVP by clicking the button below to get the meeting information. #membersonly. Safer, sober spaces guidelines in effect.
The BLGC BOOK CLUB continues on November 23rd from 7pm - 8:30pm. BOOK CLUB is a monthly online hang out, where we discuss Canadian authors and get in some socializing.
This BOOK CLUB, we will be finishing Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson and discussing.
Eden Robinson is one of Canada’s exceptional Indigenous writers. She captures our attention with this absorbing coming of age story. It takes us into a community and family that both suffer tragedy and magical realism with wry humour. It is both dark and uplifting with its blending of normalized violence, Native myth and wit. It is the first in the series of a humorous dark trilogy.
Content Warnings for Son of a Trickster: drug and alcohol use; family dynamics; historical and current trauma relating to Indigenous people in Canada; normalized violence
