Destiny has been working on a zine within the Brantford, Brant, Six Nations, and Mississaugas of Credit First Nation communities. The Zine’s theme is based on the original Pride Flag colors and their meanings. This project asked 2SLGBTQ+ youth from these communities to interpret these colours and submit a visual arts piece. At this time, submissions are no longer being accepted.We would like to thank everyone for their participation and hope to share the zine with the Brantford, Brant, Six Nations, and Mississaugas of Credit First Nation communities in the near future! Stay tuned to YouthLine’s social media for updates!

Malek is currently running a Black-only online space to foster connections between Black 2SLGBTQ+ youth in Ontario, and share artistic and educational resources. This series of workshops/sessions aims to engage Black 2SLGBTQ+ youth in the critical analysis of media (e.g. TV shows, books, poems, etc.), as well as participate in fun recreational activities. The group is currently at capacity and is not accepting any additional participants.

Abbey Lee is working on a project titled “We’re Here… For You,” which aims to provide 2SLGBTQ+ youth with community, affirmation, education, and resource sharing. This project will share videos from 2SLGBTQ+ youth on the LGBT Youthline website, with the aim of providing support and validation to a diverse group of 2SLGBTQ+ identifying folx.

The North East Cohort has decided to work on a project together to foster change and a sense of community for their region. Submissions are now closed. Thank you so much to all the amazing youth who responded! Coming soon is a form that Youth from the North East can fill out to receive their very own Affirmation Deck. In addition, we’ll be doing a Live Stream on the LGBT YouthLine social media accounts to introduce the Affirmation Deck and the short report – stay tuned for the date!
