That looks very interesting - would you know if they have any ties to LGBT, immigrant/refugee, feminist etc groups in Montréal?

We have a lesbian friend here who was a political refugee and a psychologist in her home country. It would be great if she could work on this type of project. She doesn't speak English - Spanish and French.
