Youth Groups

Our youth groups are a safe and affirming social and support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, 2-spirit, pansexual, asexual (2SLGBTQ+) and allied youth. They are primarily a social group with games, arts and crafts, and fun activities. We promote the health and wellbeing, and empowerment of 2SLGBTQ+ youth.

We believe in the strengths and assets of 2SLGBTQ+ young people and encourage youth to gain leadership skills and contribute to both the 2SLGBTQ+ community and the larger Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent communities.

Transitioning Families

We understand that being a parent, guardian or family member of a 2SLGBTQ+ youth can be challenging at times. Transitioning Families is our newest program and is a closed 6 week group for guardians and parents of trans* youth. It runs both in Windsor and Chatham. Throughout the 6 weeks we will talk about language and terminology, medical, legal and social transition, coping strategies, and communication.

For more information about Transitioning Families email educationm2m1@pozitivepathways.com.

If you feel a youth group is not for you, or maybe are uncomfortable in a group setting you can always call the Lesbian Gay Bi Youth Line at 1-800-268-YOUTH (1-800-268-9688) toll free from anywhere in Ontario.

Another great resource for education and support is Rainbow Health Ontario. This is a province-wide program designed to improve access to services and to promote the health of Ontario’s 2SLGBTQ+ communities. To learn more, please visit Rainbow Health Ontario.
