*Language: 2SLGBTQ/Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit

We use 2SLGBTQ (Two-spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer) and Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit interchangeably as umbrella terms to identify the youth that we serve. We acknowledge that these terms cannot/do not encompass the rich diversity of identities that may fall under these umbrellas, including two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, genderqueer, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, aromantic, non-binary or any other non-normative identities related to sexuality and gender.
