Who are we?


Aux Prismes

We’re a non-profit French-speaking organization offering a wide range of moderated-price activities for gay and lesbian people, and their friends. An alternative to the bars, giving opportunities to have fun, meet others and share with them.

While most participants have French as first language, everyone is welcome. Some participants speak English or different other languages. Each activity becomes a great opportunity to share culture and language knowledges!

Registering for activities

Three ways to register:

We use carpooling for transportation. Whatever method of registration you use, don’t forget to let us know if you can accommodate someone with your car or if you require a ride. The amount collected is distributed amongst drivers.

In order to ease the work of the volunteers organizing the activities, contact us as quickly as possible to let us know of any changes to your registration for an activity.

See you soon...

Membership, a real privilege

You don’t have to be a member to take part in activities, but there are lots of reasons to join. Aside from the sense of belonging that comes with being a member, you receive a discount on popular activities. Your membership gives you access to the member directory and lets you take part in decisions made by the board of directors. Cover postage costs, and as a member you can receive our event calendar and bulletin Prisma-Color by mail.

To join, simply fill out a membership form, and hand it to one of the organizers along with your annual fee of $15. Your membership is valid for up to one year, ending one month after the annual general meeting held in October.

Note: this form is available in French only.

Want to get involved?

It couldn’t be easier. It takes work by many people to put together an event. Whatever time you can give will be much appreciated. We even provide information sessions so you’ll be better prepared to help out.

Activities for all seasons

Walk with us

We offer hikes through field, mountain and forest, with vistas of stunning natural beauty. Hikes vary in difficulty.

Have an adventure

Share in new adventures on foot, by canoe, ski or in-line skate. A world of surprises lies just off the beaten track.

Discover the countryside

We explore many nearby attractions. Our program includes plant visits, tourist sites, scenic villages, panoramic views, and much more. Or take part in one of our car rallies or neighbourhood treasure hunts. You’ll venture into intriguing nooks and crannies you never knew existed — sometimes right in your own back yard!

Our weekend excursions

Find out what it really means to get away for the weekend. Be it in a humble or a luxury cabin, a campground or a B&B, you’ll have a great time, and enjoy the unbeatable prices and other many advantages of being part of a group-visit to the big city, or a park, region or recreational area.

Play outdoors even in winter

To enjoy winter to the fullest, we organize downhill and cross-country ski outings. But that’s just the beginning: skating, snowshoeing, tobogganing, and winter walks are all part of our winter agenda.

Nourish your mind

Plays, shows, museums, movies, concerts and a host of other cultural activities are also on the playbill.

Celebrate with us!

We make the year’s special events extra special. Dinner, entertainment and dances mark Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentine’s Day, and Halloween. We highlight the sugaring-off season and the arrival of fall in similar fashion. And of course we mustn’t forget the event of the year, our annual anniversary dinner in May.
