For teens who self-identify as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community in grades 9 – 12.
Growing up in a small town is a challenging event, but it is a survivable one. And there is strength in numbers, even when those numbers are scattered across the prairies. Join Luc Tellier for a free virtual conversation about growing up as a LGBTQIA+ teen in rural Alberta.
The event is totally free to attend, but advance registration is required through this link: www.eventbrite.ca
