#WeDeserveSafer

2SLGBTQIA+ youth deserve safer spaces but across Canada, 2SLGBTQIA+ youth face high rates of gender-based violence (GBV), hate and harassment.

GBV against 2SLGBTQIA+ youth is pervasive in Canada. Here’s what we know: 

  1. 63% of trans and non-binary youth reported they had experienced verbal sexual harassment in the past year. 
  2. 77% of 2SLGBTQ Indigenous students report having been harassed at school, the highest percentage out of all of their peers.
  3. 30% of 2SLGBTQ youth had been victims of cyberbullying, compared to 8% of cisgender heterosexual youth.

Together, we can end GBV against 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. Through education, allyship and action, we can make a safer world for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. Make a commitment today and take our pledge to fight GBV against 2SLGBTQIA+ youth.

Take the Pledge

To fight GBV against 2SLGBTQIA+ Youth, I pledge to:

  • Educate myself about GBV against 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, to learn about homophobia, biphobia, misogyny and transphobia
  • Speak up and support 2SLGBTQIA+ youth when I witness gender-based violence
  • Work in allyship with  2SLGBTQIA+ youth and communities towards a safer and more inclusive Canada.
