Welcome to the LGBTQ Youth Centre
The LGBTQ Youth Centre serves Montreal's West Island by providing a safe and welcoming environment where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people can come to hang out, meet, talk, get to know each other, ask questions and understand themselves better.
We engage frequently in group activities, run workshops and host local programs for LGBTQ young people, their families and friends. Our aim is to promote understanding, help dispel ignorance and encourage the free exchange of words & ideas.
Whether you are out, closeted, or somewhere in between - we are with you all the way!
