The Gender and Sexuality Alliance Leadership Forum

The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity is proud to present our annual national Gender and Sexuality Alliance Forum. The year 2017 marks the fourth year that we are hosting this program, which invites 100 GSM (gender and sexual minorities) and Allied students (ages 14-17) from across the country to participate in a week of leadership education. This training event will take place at Glendon College (2275 Bayview Avenue, Toronto) from May 9th-May 14th, 2017. The students will learn to be leaders in their school and youth communities on topics of GSM identities, diversity, anti-bullying, anti-racism, and mental health. Concurrently, the participants of the event will be trained how to run a successful Gender and Sexuality Alliance club and related activities at their school.
