Youth Awards

Our Youth Awards Gala celebrates and affirms the contributions of 2SLGBTQ youth leaders across Ontario!

The event strives to celebrate youth leaders in the 2SLGBTQ community with awards in areas such as arts and culture, social and health services, social justice, queer and trans visibility, academic environments, and community empowerment. This year while we continue to recognise the continued success of youth in our communities, we will also be celebrating 25 years of youth resilience as YouthLine turns 25!
