About

This confidential database of organizations, service and programs for 2SLGBTQ youth across Ontario is maintained by the LGBT Youth Line. Organizations can submit programs and services that are 2SLGBTQ-specific or 2SLGBTQ-positive, and we encourage anyone to suggest resources for us to add.

This database is not meant to store or provide information about individual practitioners. If you are looking for a service provider please go to the Rainbow Health Ontario Service Provider Directory which “lists health and social service providers as well as programs that have expressed a commitment to providing competent and welcoming care to LGBT2SQ people in Ontario”: https://www.rainbowhealthontario.ca/service-directory/

Youth, and service providers working with queer, trans, two-spirit young people can search the database to find resources in their area.  

 

About LGBT Youth Line

The LGBT Youth Line is a peer support line for youth 29 and under across Ontario. Peer support means that anytime a young person calls, e-mails, instant messages, or texts us, they reach a self-identified 2SLGBTQ youth who will listen to them and offer support, information, or referrals. Our youth volunteers are not professional counselors, and do not provide advice; through active listening skills, they provide a space for their peers to be heard, validated and understood. All the volunteers are trained on dealing with issues like gender identity, coming out, sex and consent, self-care, and more.
