COVID-19 Update for Peer Support HelpLine



Pride 2022 is here!

This summer, LGBT YouthLine invites all supporters, community members, friends, and chosen family to celebrate Pride every day, in every way. Everyone has a different way they decide to celebrate their identities, growth, and communities – and each way they do that is personal and important.  

Whether in-person or virtual, surrounded by swaths of people or a few chosen family members,  quietly reflecting by yourself or attending a rally or parade, binging your favourite queer content from bed, or a mix of all of it – it’s all valid! 

Pride started as a protest. It is a reminder of the work generations before have put in, the challenges our communities face today, and how much we have left to go.  

Pride is a celebration: of our identities, community, resilience, and joy.  

Pride is a chance to connect: reuniting with chosen family after periods of isolation and social distance, learning about the resilience of 2SLGBTQ+ communities around the globe and in our backyards, and learning how to gather, survive, and strive for better as a community. 

Pride is built from the work and legacy of our 2SLGBTQ+ ancestors and elders, and we can choose to celebrate them, ourselves, and future generations every day – not just in one day, week, or month.  

We live pride in being ourselves, living authentically and truthfully, prioritizing our well-being and happiness, making sure we help others stay happy, healthy, and safe – and surrounding ourselves with others who do the same for us.  

Ways to participate:  

  • Run a virtual Pride Celebration in support of LGBT YouthLine 
  • Donate to LGBT YouthLine to ensure we can continue to celebrate pride every day, every way. Our year-round work is only possible because of the generosity of our supporters!  
  • Request our outreach materials to spread the word about YouthLine
  • Follow us on social media and share our content!

Happy Pride <3
