So here they are! For those of you asking where those #homovember photos went.. we’ve just posted them!

As many of you know, the month of Movember is officially closing. But its more than just one month! It’s a movement, it’s also a calling for men to stand up for their health when so many of us don’t. It’s about a change in established habits and attitudes men have and to educate them on the risks they face.

Early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

Over this past month we at The Gaily have hosted several events within our community to fund raise for this cause. HOMO-Bros and HOMO-Sisters alike participated in these events and we did a heck of a job together. So far our team has riased well over $1200 dollars and we were even featured on CBC Radio’s Homerun show at the beginning of the month which was pretty freakin’ exciting to say the least.

So today, as we close the month off with these crazy moosestaches I wanted to share our official photos with you all.

SPECIAL THANKS!

To Val Desjardins and her Royal team at the Royal Phoenix Bar for hosting our official party. We could not have done this without your support.

To my #homovember team, thanks to each for working with me on this campaign. You rock!

Lastly, please encourage the men in your lives to have their yearly check. It could save their lives!

To men’s health-
