Six Nations Youth Group for LGBTQ community launches
A group of young Six Nations youth have started a new monthly drop-in program for all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer, 2 Spirited and Intersex people and supporters, beginning in April.
On Saturday, March 26 at Social Services from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., there will be an LGBTQ Extravaganza event to launch the drop-in program.
Supported by the Native Youth Sexual Health Network (NYSHN), the event will include ice breakers, arts activities throughout the day, panel and group discussions on coming out, workshops on sexual health education and how to create community, and an open-mic for anyone to take the opportunity to express their art.
The drop-in will offer those who have concealed their sexual/gender identity a support system while they go through the process of understanding who they are and sharing that with the people in their lives.
