Making the Annapolis Valley a better place for LGBTQ youth and our allies

Consent is... mutual, active, respecting boundaries, comfortable, retractable, checking, willingly given

Max Janes wasn’t able to join us two drop ins ago, so we’ve invited them back and we’re looking forward to following up on the hot topics of queer and trans health.

Max is a student at Acadia studying to become a certified sex and gender educator, focusing on consent-based education.  They wrote to us:

“Knowing what is important to you as a young queer person is an important step in self care. I would like to have a discussion on queer-focused personal values, and how you can integrate that into a healthy and regular self-care routine.”

What do you think: What does self-care mean to you?  What do you wish you knew more about?  Are there things you don’t feel like you know how to say about your values, your health, your body?

Bring your questions and ideas to the usual time and place: Room 128 of the the Louis Millet Community Complex (LMCC),  9489 Commercial St. New Minas.   Drop-in any time between 6:30 – 8:30PM. All 25-and-under LGBTQ+/MOGAI youth, friends, and allies are welcome, whether it’s your first time or hundredth time.

And don’t forget to sign up in advance for transportation if you need it!
