The Youth Project is extending our deepest condolences on the loss of Doug Melanson. Doug supported the community in many ways, including donations to our programs and services during his years as a business owner of MenzBar. From funds to school supplies, we are grateful for the thoughtfulness and support he gave our organization. Our thoughts are with his husband, daughter and family, and the many who called him friend.
“If [youth] see me, as a business person, openly gay, doing my business, reaching out to support them, hopefully they’re going to go on their career paths and do the same.” -Doug
There will be a celebration of his life, at MenzBar located at 2182 Gottingen Street in Halifax, Nova Scotia from 7 to 10 pm on Thursday, August 3, 2017.
