REX Pride

The REX Pride program supports the 2SLGBTQ+ BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Colour) youth in the Rexdale/North Etobicoke community. This is accomplished through our peer program called QMAP (Queer Media Arts Program) which utilizes various forms of art as a means of expression and exploration of identity in a safe, healthy and guided manner. We also develop creative projects based on needs and interests of the youth as well as partnership opportunities.

 

We also offer case management connecting the youth to whatever information, supports and services they may need. We often connect them to in-house services with clinical staff that have been trained by Rainbow Health Ontario as well as mental health supports. When we don’t have the capacity to support we connect them to our network of partners that can assist and support in an inclusive, supportive and low barrier process. All referrals to resources, supports and partners, practice from an anti-oppressive framework.

 

In addition, we are supporting, educating and advocating through our CEE (Community Engagement and Education) program. Through this program we support the local community through a multitude of activities in the hopes to create more inclusive pockets in the community which in-turn creates a ripple effect across the community. On the local level, we work with local schools and organizations through programming, advising and training. We sit on various committees informing the City of the challenges and barriers faced by our marginalized community through intersectional, systemic barriers.
