On November 29th, Youth Line is participating in Giving Tuesday, a fundraising campaign to encourage donations during the holiday season. This year, we’ve seen a significant increase in our calls from lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and questioning youth from across Ontario. Last year we had over 5,000 calls. We want to build on the #GivingTuesdayCa hype to help us meet a rising demand and continue to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ youth across the province.
We need your help to raise $10,000 for our LGBTQ+ youth peer support services
As part of this campaign, we are approaching our friends to ask for their support for our campaign. Participate by giving us an #unselfie and a positive message. We’ll tell you a bit more about that, but first, more about Youth Line:
Who is LGBT Youth Line?
The Youth Line exists to provide services for youth, by youth that affirm the experiences and aspirations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, 2-spirit, queer and questioning youth in Ontario. Working within an anti-oppression and anti-racist framework, we provide confidential peer support and referrals by telephone, text and chat to support the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ youth.
What’s an unselfie?
What kind of messages of support could we use? Are there examples?
To help you out, we have examples of messages you can use for your unselfie taglines. Examples include:
What if I don’t feel comfortable taking my picture? Can I take an anonymous unselfie?
What should I do once I take my unselfie?
Are there examples of unselfies that I can take a look at?
