I was shooting photos for a story just now, and as I was leaving I realized that the project which the shoot was for (don’t worry, I will post it here in good time 😉 ) was in no ordinary building.
From top to bottom, you have:
– an LGBT youth group and a nonprofit that tries to take the mystery out of sexual diversity
– a mosque
– a centre (Parents-Espoir, link in French) for people who are dealing with mental health problems while raising kids
– a language school which is almost certainly a front for a fringe African Christian group
– the multiethnic centre
– the Centre for Rights and Freedoms (equivalent of the ACLU).
…and they all seem to get along, at least well enough to share a building. Welcome to modern urban living!
