Transgender, Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Queer Resources

One of the most challenging aspects of coming out, or considering transitioning, is the overwhelming confusion about the process ahead! Each person has their own unique journey, and many important decisions to make along the way. In an effort to help you along as you explore what is right for you, I have put together a resource list for LGBTQ+ people in Ontario. This list will provide you with the opportunity to kick start your exploration of the services available to you.

For many people, one of the best ways to equip your self-exploration is through therapy that facilitates an examination of all of the factors that impact you, may hold you back, and what will help you on your journey ahead. To book an appointment, visit our contact page.

Please feel free to contact us with any updates to the below list.
