Plan B in brief is an alternative queer community space by queer folks for queer folks. We're developing our organization into a not-for-profit worker cooperative. We're aiming to merge three key elements in our day-to-day operations: part resource center, part coffee shop and communal space, and part feminist sex-positive toy store. We're aiming to offer a people's photocopier, zine library, alternative education and programming, and offer items such as binders and ethical harnesses for queer bodies.
 
The long-term strategic goal is to develop a strong membership drive that will sustain us as an organization and enable us to develop a foundation. The foundation's vision is to fund the unfundable; provide financial support to queer and trans folk who need to travel in between cities for doctors' offices, or even assist in legal name change processes, and even help medical coverage like hormones or surgeries for trans and intersex folks! There is nothing like this that exists; all the more reason for our Kitchener-Waterloo community to foreground something spectacular.

There's a lot going on. We have big ideas and a huge drive to do it. We're in the early stages of incorporation - the process of forming into an organization recognized by the government. As you can tell, this is a big step. Find out more at our blog: planbcooperativekw.wordpress.com or like us on Facebook! Plan B Cooperative KW.
