12 Days of Resources: #4 LGBTQ Youth Line
The holidays don’t always bring the best out of our loved ones, which might mean that you need a bit more support. For Day Four of our 12 Days of Resources we are highlighting the LGBT Youth Line.
LGBT Youth Line offers confidential and non-judgemental peer support through telephone, 1-800-268-9688, text, 647-694-4275, and chat services. Get in touch with a peer support volunteer from Sunday to Friday, 4 pm to 9:30 pm. The LGBT Youth Line is a toll-free Ontario-wide peer-support phone line for lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirited, queer and questioning young people. Youth Line maintains a database of referral resources for LGBT youth in Ontario. Find LGBT-specific and LGBT-positive services and supports in your area by searching the list.
If you need support outside of these operating hours here are some distress lines you can call 24 hrs a day.
