Description (EN):
At La French Touche, we strongly believe in the power of music as a medium of effective communication for positive change. Having a Live stage in French, Canada’s second official language, will expand our reach and build bridges between 2SLGBTQ+ communities and beyond. Our theme this year is “L’amour, notre racine. S’aimer pour semer.” which means, “Rooted in love we grow strong!” More than ever before this is the message we want people to remember and be inspired from. Rooted in love celebrates the essence of one’s most authentic self and encourages each to embrace others from within so we can make this world a better place for ALL.
