Youth & Teen Mental Health Coming of age is hard under practically all circumstances; coming of age and identifying as LGBTQ+ can be even more difficult, especially if the very people who are supposed to protect and love you judge you and treat you differently because of your orientation. The discrimination, abuse, and marginalization that LGBTQ+ young adults face in childhood can carry over well into adulthood in multiple areas of life, including the workplace, the family, the legislative chamber, and even the doctor’s office. Internal and external stressors can lead to serious mental health issues, including suicidal ideations and attempts. LGBTQ+ Young Adults and Teen Mental Health Guide

POSTPONED Indefinitely Location to be announced (Central Edmonton) Free
As soon as we are sure it will be safe for everyone to meet we will reschedule this very important meeting.
Let's look ahead to the year 2050, where are our young people? How many of them have lived to become the parents, teachers, leaders, professionals? How many didn't?
Our focus at Queer Voicez is saving lives and helping our youth create conditions in which they can flourish.
We are currently holding a series of conversations with individuals who not only respect diversity of all kinds, but celebrate it.
Please join us in a conversation on how we can get our LGBT+ youth from 2020 to 2050 and beyond.
Our first meeting is scheduled for March 21, 2020 Maximum 20 people (so all voices can be heard).
Looking for members of the LGBT+ community and allies, people with different ethnic backgrounds, people of different abilities, different ages, different socioeconomic representations. We want all voices to be heard. Come and share your voice.
