What we're about

Founded in 1984, Kind gives people in Ottawa’s queer communities personal and peer support, as well as a physical space for people to understand and inhabit their particular identities with confidence and courage. Kind provides anyone on the human sexuality and gender spectrum with resources, information and support. We provide services and to supports to our community and connect them to places and spaces. Programs, events and initiatives include youth outreach initiatives, and peer led discussion/support groups. Peer-led groups Kind runs include: Queer trans youth, Café Q, Polybilities, QueerAmore, GenderQuest, etc. that are powered by our volunteers. Kind also hosts a variety of social events each month ranging from swim nights to art nights to movie nights as well as events during Pride week.

[Kind Space in person programs and services are currently closed until further notice due to COVID-19 and the fact that Kind Space has a new home at 400 Cooper and we are currently unpacking and restructuring]
