QX Group

QX is a drop-in social and support group for queer and trans adults over the age of 18 who live in Peel Region. The group provides opportunities for peer support, social networking, discussion and social events. No pre-registration or commitment is required. We will feed you and supply bus tickets to those participants who need them.

Come join us and connect with other queer and trans folks in Peel! Sometimes group goes out! Call ahead to find out.

PFLAG Peel

In a warm and caring atmosphere, families and friends hear about the experiences of others, share their own, and get support in learning to understand and accept their child, family member or friend. All discussions are confidential, and many people come at first to listen and not to talk. PFLAG welcomes parents, families and friends, as well as their LGBTTIQQ2S loved ones.

Each month families come to the PFLAG meeting, hoping to hear from others experiencing similar situations. If you are a parent, sibling or partner of a queer or trans loved one who no longer needs support in your own process, but is open to sharing your experience with others, it would be lovely if you could join us.

Refreshments and bus tickets provided.
