Are you building (or are interested in building) 2SLGBTQ community where you live? LGBT YouthLine wants to connect with you!

Through the launch of our new program YouthOrganize, we’re connecting with youth 29 and under in Ontario who are building community through starting your own youth groups, GSAs, events, or collectives.  Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start, or how to make your group or program the best it can be! We are here for you and are launching a new online space to connect with 2SLGBTQ youth across Ontario who are doing work in their communities.

Here’s what we do:

  • Our webinar schedule is now up! We’re hosting online webinars where you will have the chance to talk with other 2SLGBTQ+ youth building community spaces across Ontario, share challenges, and get help and support.  
  • YouthOrganize hired 2SLGBTQ+ youth to write resources and tools on how to organize. They’re currently writing on topics on getting started with organizing to more specific challenges like finding space, making events more accessible and inclusive, and organizing in schools!
  • Check out our current resource page here 
  • We’re having important conversations and skills shares around building more anti-oppressive, accessible spaces.  
  • Get your group or program added to Youth Line’s Resource Database, so that other 2SLGBTQ can find your awesome programs, groups, and events!

If you have any questions about YouthOrganize in the meantime, please contact Minna Frederick at or by phone at
