“We thought carefully about things we wished we had access to when we were struggling with our identities, or when we were struggling with the erasure, normativity, and violence in our everyday world… It is our hope that this deck finds its way to the hands of young queer and trans folks who might not otherwise have access to supportive communities.”
– “The Affirmations Deck” intro
The Affirmations Deck was created by a group of queer and trans* youth involved with Planned Parenthood Toronto’s Filling in the Blanks: Queering SexEd project! Each card features a statement to help youth feel seen, valued, and supported. The cards touch on A BUNCH of topics, including bodies, consent, gender, identity, healing/recovery, self-love, relationships, and more.
You can download a PDF of all the cards in the deck here:
Or contact email@example.com to see if there are any print copies still available.
If you have questions about this topic, feel free to contact one of our peer educators. [Link]
