Woodstein Media Podcast Episode 15: Bruce Duncan Skeaff assesses the SPCC role in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and promotes Stratford’s “big gay 2023”

In episode 15, Bruce Duncan Skeaff, the president and chair of the board at the Stratford Pride Community Centre, assesses how things have been going as it approaches the one-year mark since opening. He discusses what he had expected the role of the community centre would have been for the local 2SLGBTQIA+ community and how it has been utilized as a resource to help people.

Skeaff also promoted Stratford’s “big gay 2023,” which means that instead of introducing new events that would compete with Stratford’s already busy tourist season, the SPCC hopes to help promote 2SLGBTQIA+ friendly businesses and events that are already planned or operating.
