June is PRIDE month in Toronto! What is Pride and what does it mean for LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer) newcomers? Access Alliance’s programming recognizes that LGBTQ+ newcomers face particular challenges in adjusting to their new country. We provide settlement counselling that supports clients to find their way in Toronto and develop increased confidence and pride in who they are. Our expressive arts program allows LGBTQ newcomers to use art to explore issues and experiences that are important or meaningful to them. Among our innovative projects to address the needs of the LGBTQ immigrant community is our recently completed Among Friends Initiative. This training and capacity building project supported other community-based agencies to create positive and inclusive spaces for LGBTQ newcomers. Training, workshops and resources were provided by our LGBTQ newcomer volunteers. Find out more at www.accessalliance.com/lgbtq
