The Queer and Trans Youth Collaborative is a working group comprised of many organizations in Hamilton that serve youth and want to ensure that their workplaces are safe and affirming for young LGBTQ2S+ people. As a group we come together to share information, discuss ongoing concerns, and work together to build solutions to the gaps in service that LGBTQ2S+ youth face.

We are currently in a transitional period, and the position of QTYC Project Coordinator has ended as of August 29, 2018. Please see this page< for a list of Hamilton LGBTQ+ resources https://www.aidsnetwork.ca/lgbtq2s-hamilton-resources.

If you would like to get involved with the Collaborative, or follow up about training opportunities and assessments, you can email the QTYC Chair, Darrell Byers at dbyers@hwdsb.on.ca.

If you would like to connect about youth programming and youth-led initiatives, please connect with speqtrum Hamilton (speqtrum.ca) by emailing Project Coordinator Jyssika at info@speqtrum.ca.

If you would like to like more information about joining the Rainbow Youth Collaborative, please contact Latisha at latishalynnl@gmail.com.

For more information about local resources and services for queer, trans, and two spirit people in Hamilton, please connect with Mela Pothier, LGBTQ+ Client Advocate at North Hamilton Community Health Centre at pothier@nhchc.ca.

For immediate support, you can reach Youthline at youthline.ca for peer support for 2SLGBTQ+ youth 29 and under. Trans and gender diverse people of all ages can call the translifeline.org at 877-330-6366.
