Our diversity is our strength. Let’s make sure the path to pride is illuminated with support for 2SLGBTQ+ Winnipeggers—every step of the way.

Stigma, marginalization, health risks—these are only a few of the challenges our 2SLGBTQ+ neighbours face every day.

With the devastating effects of discrimination, 2SLGBTQ+ Winnipeggers are more likely to experience challenges like mental illness, self-harm, substance abuse, financial hardship, and violence.

Let’s work together to build a kinder, more inclusive Winnipeg.

The reality in Winnipeg


of 2SLGBTQ+ Canadians struggle to afford basic necessities


youth are 14 times more likely to be at risk of suicide and substance abuse

Hate crimes

targeting sexual orientation in Canada are spiking—and over half (53%) are physically violent


Canadians are twice as likely to experience homelessness

How we’re transforming lives

We imagine a community free of discrimination and rich in opportunity, so every Winnipegger has the chance to succeed.

Your gift helps make that possible. Our donors support a network of 125+ agency partners promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values.

Together, we’re celebrating diversity, busting stigma, and building welcoming spaces of safety and inclusion by making supports like these possible:

  • Mental health and well-being supports
  • Mentorship for 2SLGBTQ+ youth
  • Access to essential services in a safe environment
  • Community awareness and education
  • Advocacy for human rights and civil liberties

Mental health & well-being

Nobody should have to struggle in silence.

Your support means 2SLGBTQ+ Winnipeggers can access counselling, addiction help, support groups, and other well-being resources to cope with challenges.

Meaningful mentorship

When youth have a trusted adult in their life, it can change everything.

Your gift supports one-of-a-kind mentoring programs for 2SLGBTQ+ youth to help foster pride, build confidence, explore culture, and create intergenerational connections within Winnipeg’s 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Breaking down barriers

Getting the right help isn’t always easy—especially when you encounter discrimination.

Your gift helps break down barriers so 2SLGBTQ+ youth and adults can find the resources they need—from trauma-informed health care to employment to housing supports—all in a safe and welcoming environment.

Building safer spaces

It takes all of us to build a more equitable community.

That’s why our donors help educate and strengthen the capacity of educators, businesses, employers, and service providers so they can create safer, more inclusive spaces for our 2SLGBTQ+ communities.

Human rights for all

Your gift sparks change at all levels of society.

Our donors offer stable support to agency partners with long histories of human rights advocacy, such as the Manitoba Association of Rights and Liberties, Rainbow Resource Centre, and the Social Planning Council.
