“Love is Love BDA’s recent event catered to Bermuda’s LGBTQ+ & ally community, featured Bermuda’s own DJLA, drink specials and most importantly included a raffle whereas $1500 was raised and later donated to their chosen charity Transitional Community Services.[TCS], thanks in part to generous donations made by several local businesses.

TCS said, “We are grateful to have been identified as the charity of choice by Love is Love BDA. We extend our gratitude to the many supporters and sponsors of the raffles prizes. Through your generosity this gift was possible, and will go a long way in supporting us with continuing to provide services to at risk young adult men aged 18-34.”
