Support Groups


The LGBTQ2SI+ community is diverse so while it's nice to hang and get support from other people in the space, sometimes you want to know other people have similar lived experience. All support groups are closed to the identity they cater to and are facilitated by volunteers with lived experience. 

Safe Space at Groups

In order to create a space where all participants can feel safe, accepted, and able to participate, we make every effort to follow these guidelines during meetings:

1.    Racism, sexism, ableism, classism, religious discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, and ageism are prohibited in all meetings

2.    The identities of people who participate in the group and everything discussed in the group is strictly confidential

Additionally, at the beginning of each Newcomers meeting, Safe Space will be discussed, and participants are able to add anything to the policy they feel would help create a safe space for their participation.

Alternative Spaces for Support

If you are unavailable at the time of a group you identify with or would prefer support outside a group setting you may set up a one on one peer support appointment with a volunteer who meets your needs. Message any of our social media platforms or email pride@msu.mcmaster.ca to set up an appointment.
