Building Gender & Sexually Diverse Communities
Improving Community Capacity to Support Two-Spirit and Indigenous LGBTQ+ Folxs
Two-Spirit and Indigenous LGBTQ+ community members deserve dedicated supports within their communities. This project recognizes the needs of folxs of diverse gender and sexual identities. We are part of the circle.
Support. Provide support for anyone that identifies or is questioning as gender or sexually diverse, or their friends, families and allies. Can also facilitate family, friend or relationship circles.
Two Spirit/Indigi-queer Circle. Circle that shares teachings, and practices that allow us to support each other in leading a good life.
Activities & Events. Movie nights, medicine walks, game nights. Various social activities to spend time together. Work to create community building with larger LGBTQQIAP+ in Grey and Bruce County community though networking and shared events and activities. Provide opportunities for folxs to get together in a relaxed social space and to access resources and support on topics and issues that relate to sexual and romantic connections, and gender.
Outreach. For those that want to know more about Gender & Sexually Diversity and how to facilitate engagement and more supportive communities. Can do this by facilitating workshops or by consultation.
