Salaam Canada, The 519

Salaam Canada is a volunteer-run national organization dedicated to creating space for people who identify as both Muslim and queer and trans.
Salaam (Toronto Chapter) holds a monthly discussion group at the 519 Church Street Community Centre.
This group has a drop-in model and primarily focuses on discussions related to coming out, sexuality, spirituality, and religion and offers social support to its attendees. Some months, social events are held instead of support group discussions at the 519.

Salaam offers one-on-one peer support to those who contact the group nationally. In-person or online peer support requests can be arranged based on volunteer availability and capacity. Peer support means having supportive conversations, sharing experiences, and learning information about resources with a Salaam volunteer. This is often the first point of contact for many people who later access Salaam’s services
