Pride 2023 is here!
For our Pride Theme for 2023, we want the world to know our community is here and is not going anywhere! This Pride, LGBT YouthLine invites all supporters, community members, friends, and chosen family to highlight our history, our successes, and our resilience as a 2SLGBTQ+ community.
Throughout the month of June, we want to amplify the great work and rich history of our 2SLGBTQ+ community in Ontario. Make sure you stay tuned to our social media for more content!
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.
With the rise in anti-2SLGBTQ+ hate, Pride is a chance to connect and reunite with chosen family & community. This time highlights the resilience of 2SLGBTQ+ communities around the globe and in our backyards, and through this, we learn 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.
