Queer Trans Youth is a peer-led discussion and support group for LGBTTQIA youth, ages 25 and under, in Ottawa. It’s Canada’s longest running group for LGBTTQIA youth and by LGBTTQIA youth: a safe space for young people to come for discussions, understanding, support, and most importantly, fun. What can you expect at QTY? Intros & highs/lows – We begin the night by letting people around the circle know who we are, and if we’re up to it, sharing our highs and lows for the week Main activity – We do something different each week and do our best to post it ahead of time. Follow the Kind Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/kindspaceca?fref=ts) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/kindspaceca)! Quiet room – Sometimes we need to talk more about our lows of the week, or we’ve been triggered by an aspect of the activity, or we’re just not feeling all that sociable. The quiet room is available for those times. WHEN: Wednesdays 7:00–9:30 pm WHERE: Kind – 222 Somerset St. W, suite 404 ________ Programs, events and initiatives include counselling services, youth outreach initiatives, and peer led discussion/support groups.

**NOTE THIS GROUP RUNS ON THE FOURTH THURSDAY OF THE MONTH** The Men’s Group is a peer-led discussion and social group. The Men’s Group is a time when men of all ages, cultures, abilities, and orientations can have a safe space to interact and socialize with one another. Centred on the needs of the men in the group, discussions follow topics selected by attendees. It’s a fun place to learn and explore.

Every Friday, between 7 and 11 pm, a diverse and dynamic group of youth meet at Kind for an evening of low-pressure hanging out. We supply snacks, coffee, and tea; participants enjoy them during board games, video games, and lounging on couches. The Café is open to youth 13-19. Peer counselling is available at the Café as well as by appointment. Supports from Etc.’s leadership team can provide participants with a confidential listening and non-judgmental ear, share experiences and coping strategies, and offer resources.
