Gender Construction Zone

Announcing the new Gender Construction Zone:

Are you a young trans, gender variant or questioning person looking for a community, and people to talk to who can relate to your experiences? Are you looking for a way to explore your gender identity without "out"ing yourself to your friends, family, or others in your life? Do you know someone in a situation like this?

There's a new group in town for for young transgender, gender variant, genderqueer, and questioning people. It will be a peer support, resource sharing, community building, and discussion group to address the current lack of such a group in the Montreal anglophone community. The group will meet weekly on a yet-to-be-determined date, hopefully starting by the end of January.

We aim to make the Gender Construction Zone a totally confidential and non-judgemental space. We aim to welcome people of colour from all class backgrounds, of all sexualities and dis/abilities. If there's anything we can do to better accomodate you let us know.

If you are interested in attending the group or finding out more about it, contact us at, and we can let you know where and when the group meetings will be held.
