2SLGBTQ+ Resource Hub

PREVNet celebrates Pride Month as we continue to strive for equality, safety, and acceptance for all.

PREVNet works to create a safe climate for all youth and is committed to addressing the systemic oppression that puts certain groups at a higher risk of violence. We continue to support change towards making life safer for 2SLGBTQ+ youth, and raising awareness of healthy relationships, bullying and youth dating violence through education, research, training, and policy change.

Here, we’ve collected a short list of websites with tons of fantastic resources for providing educators, parents, caregivers, and anyone working with youth the tools to provide care and support for 2SLGBTQ+ youth.

Pride and National Indigenous History Month  

In addition to Pride, June is also National Indigenous History Month. Because of systemic oppression, marginalized youth are at a higher risk of being victimized by bullying, harassment, and violence. And this is especially true for youth at a cross-section of multiple marginalized identities, such as being 2SLGBTQ+ and Indigenous.

As we continue to work toward a future that is better, safer, and more affirming for all, here are some resources for Indigenous 2SLGBTQ+ youth:

Enchanté Network

The Enchanté Network connects and supports over 120 pride centres and 2SLGBTQ+ service providers across Canada. This month, the Enchanté Network is unveiling #PrideOnTurtleIsland — a campaign celebrating the work of 2 Spirit and Indigi-queer leaders & organizations.

LGBT Youthline
This Pride season, LGBT Youthline wants you to #Dare2Imagine a world where youth of all genders and sexualities are supported and celebrated. Check out their social media for resources centering Indigenous youth in Pride celebrations.
