Categories: Equity

Throughout the last two years of the pandemic, various GSAs across the TDSB provided support to 2SLGBTQ+ students and their allies. These GSAs:

  • Centred 2SLGBTQ+ Black, Indigenous, Latinx, racialized students, students with disabilities and students who may not be “out,” who may not use the labels 2SLGBTQ+, but who may be same gender loving, or exploring diverse sexual and gender identities and expressions;
  • Anticipated and responded to unique challenges with love, resilience, and creativity;
  • Showed up and created affirming, loving, and accessible spaces and moments during a global pandemic that was especially hard on marginalized queer and trans communities;
  • Engaged in collective care, while building meaningful connections and relationships across communities;
  • Demanded accountability and liberation through intersectional activism, education, collective freedom dreaming, and future world building.

8 Gender and Sexuality Alliances have been awarded $1000 each to support their continued work to affirm students’ multiple identities and combat ongoing homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, misogynoir, and heterosexism:
