PEERS Alliance is looking to build community among LGBTQ2S+ people in PEI by launching a new project this fall called Linking Together. “So much has changed over the years for LGBTQ2S+ people,” said project coordinator Hannah Gehrels “but there is still so much isolation and discrimination, and we’re hoping that this project will help to build richer community and deeper connections in our LGBTQ2S + community here on PEI”.

The Linking Together project is a community-building project for up to 10 LGBTQ2S + people from a wide range of ages, perspectives, and life experiences. It will consist of 6 facilitated discussion-based sessions (meeting once a week on Thursday evenings starting Nov 1) that will culminate with the planning of a larger community-building action. Each session will have snacks, engaging activities, and facilitated discussion.

The identity of the participants and what they choose to share in the group sessions will remain confidential. There are some limited funds to help reimburse the costs of travelling from outside of Charlottetown.

“It is a great opportunity to talk about your own experiences and learn from others” said Gehrels, “It’s going to be a space for sharing our personal and collective histories as LGBTQ2s+ people, building new relationships with each other, and helping to shape what community-building could look like in our community”. 

To apply to participate in this project fill out a short form at thepeersalliance.ca. Deadline to apply is October 18.
