Q&T Groups

Originally, we held a weekly Queer & Trans Group for youth under 30 every Thursday at 7:00pm. What we found though, was that there was a fundamental difference of experiences for high school aged youth, and for youth who were in their mid-twenties. What's more is that high school aged youth explained that it was hard for them to find a way to the Centre to meet so late.

Because of this, we've chosen to host two groups every Thursday: one for youth under 20 and one for people over 19.

It's important to remember that these groups exist to provide support to queer and trans people, not for dating purposes. Staff and volunteers at the Rainbow Centre have a right to ask people to leave who are thought to be cruising, rather than accessing the space for support.

Q&T Youth Group

Every Thursday at 4:00pm, we host a Queer & Trans Group for youth at the Centre. This group is only open to LGBTQ+ identified youth under 20 years old. 

This group is mostly just meant for queer and trans youth to meet each other, talk about different stuff, and gain support. Each week has a different topic that is chosen by the youth who attended the previous group.

The group's facilitator changes depending on the week, so if you're interested in facilitating, please contact us at info@rainbowcoalitionyk.org.

If you have any questions, or want to come by the Centre before group to see if it's for you, you can contact us at info@rainbowcoalitionyk.org or by stopping by the Centre.

Q&T Group for Adults

Every Thursday at 7:00pm, we host a Queer & Trans Group for people over 19 at the Centre. This group is only open to LGBTQ+ identified people over 19.

This group is not a space to meet potential partners. It's meant for queer and trans people to meet each other, talk about different stuff, and gain support. Each week has a different topic that is chosen by the people who attended the previous group.

The group's facilitator changes depending on the week, so if you're interested in facilitating, please contact us at info@rainbowcoalitionyk.org.

If you have any questions, or want to come by the Centre before group to see if it's for you, you can contact us at info@rainbowcoalitionyk.org or by stopping by the Centre.
