The Queer and Trans Youth Collaborative (QTYC) 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 2SLGBTQ+ 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 2SLGBTQ+ youth face.

We are currently in a transitional period, and the position of QTYC Project Coordinator has ended as of August 29, 2018.  Find information available about the resources offered to people who are a part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community in the City of Hamilton. 

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, 2SLGBTQ+ 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 translifeline.org at 877-330-6366.
