REX Pride

The REX Pride program supports the 2SLGBTQ+ BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) youth, 12-24 y/o, in the Rexdale/North Etobicoke community.

Methods of Engagement

  • QMAP(Queer Media Arts Program), youth peer 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 the needs and interests of the youth as well as partnership opportunities. 

 

Program Details:

 Date & Time: Tuesdays from 5 pm -7 pm

Location: 222 Dixon Road, Unit 301                                

To attend please register or contact the Coordinator 

                                                                                                             

  • Case management, one-to-one sessions with the youth to connect them to whatever information, supports, resources and services they may require. We offer 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.
  • CEE(C ommunity Engagement and Education) program which focuses on supporting, educating and advocating. 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 schools and organizations in the community 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.
