TKVO is a medical acronym meaning “to keep vein open." We're a retail shop, a lifestyle, and a state of mind. Located in the heart of Toronto’s Dundas West neighbourhood, TKVO is the little queer gift shop that could; an inclusive and *safe space, always.
TKVO is Queer and Trans owned and operated, and our team is committed to respecting pronouns, engaging in conversation, supporting our LGBTQ+ communities, and highlighting queer makers.
At TKVO we are body positive, and sex positive feminists, carving out a little space in this big city for more queerdom.
You are always welcome. You are always safe.
*safe space: "a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation,gender identity or expression, cultural background, religious affiliation, age, or physical or mental ability."
