Safer Space for LGBTQ+ Youth

Leave your thoughts

L’Astérisk is a friendly, bilingual, non-commercial space where Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer and questioning youth have access to information, services and a variety of activities. It is also a place where youth under 25 years old can find the support of an intervention teem and peer support. The space is also available on request for groups and LGBTQ+ youth organizations.

Like in the word trans*, the asterisk symbolizes the inclusion of all and for all, without limit or hierarchy of identities.

L’Astérisk is also a place which houses various youth organizations. Project 10, Jeunesse lambda and the Montreal Youth Coalition Against Homophobia have offices there. Together they are the romates of l’Astérisk….
