Poster for sendtherightmessage.ca campaign by the LGBTQ Initiative, about responding in non-harmful ways to LGBTQ folk

Send the Right Message!

Send The Right Message is a brand new campaign of Planned Parenthood Toronto’s LGBTQ Youth Initiative!

The goal of the campaign is to encourage straight and cisgender youth to challenge every day instances of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. Think of them as being here to help straight/cis youth to be allies to their LGBTQ friends!

Head over to sendtherightmessage.ca to get more info on:

There are also quizzes, FAQs, and an in-depth glossary! If you’re an educator or a community organizer who works with youth, check out how you can order materials to help promote anti-homophobia, anti-transphobia, and anti-biphobia in your spaces: Link

Oh, and remember last month when we interviewed Arti from the LGBTQ Youth Initiative? Check it out: Link.

For more up to date info on the campaign, follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.

If you have questions about this topic, feel free to contact one of our peer educators. [Link]
