While there have been very significant improvements in Canada, discrimination and efforts to enforce invisibility of LGBTQ2S+ people and communities is ongoing. 

 

The result is that LGBTQ2S+ people experience higher than average levels of abuse, neglect and self-neglect. 

Everyone is worthy of recognition and love and deserving of respect.
