Last Thursday, Team DCMTL attended Queer Tech MTL’s monthly event, only this time there was an especially unique theme: For the Love of Allies. This networking equivalent of a love note paid homage to the allies who continue to support the Queer startup community.
As their invitation said: “Without our allies, we would be far too exclusionary for our flamboyant tastes! ”
The red-themed event took place in the modern chic office spaces at Local Logic in 5545 Avenue de Gaspé, and allowed attendees to schmooze and enjoy themselves, while showing support the hardworking members of Montreal’s startup community.
The clever quirks and details were noticeable, like the conversation starters with noun-labeled wine glasses and names faithful companions, the “straight” companions who support the gay community. Guests were welcomed with incredible generosity: plenty of snacks, wine and other finishing touches in a spaciously elegant room.
Needless to say, we felt the love on Thursday evening and made sure to take advantage of the opportunity to connect with dynamic people who so graciously opened the doors of their social circle. Bravo Queer Tech MTL! Your love of allies was admirable, and the feelings of gratitude were contagious.
