Queer + Trans Mental Health

FVP   QT Mental Health2021

When: July 20, 2021 at 2pm - 4pm

Contact: Alistair ·


Join Mycelium in partnership with Fraser Valley Pride as we begin to unpack what it means for us as queer and trans youth to navigate our mental health. By grounding ourselves in what care can look and feel like, we will explore through an intersectional lens how our identities and relationships to self and community inform our wellness. We will share in reflections, strategies that feel good and right for us, and most of all: Let's Have Fun! Activities will be led by Alistair (they/them) and Skye (he/they). RSVP below, or contact Alistair using the information provided.

Mycelium Description

Mycelium is a space for queer & trans youth 16-29 across what is currently known as BC, where we gather to center healing, pleasure, and justice in our lives as we envision and create a world liberated from HIV & Hep C stigma.

We are committed to reducing stigma related to HIV & Hep C and to building communities where we feel safe talking about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure. 

Land Acknowledgement 

Mycelium events take place on traditional, unceded territories of various First Nations in what is now colonially referred to as ‘British Columbia’. We hold this fact in our hearts and actions throughout our work at Mycelium. Our team is committed to an ongoing process of learning what it means to do work on this land in a way that brings us closer to Indigenous Sovereignty.  

Mycelium offers online and in person programs organized by coordinators based on the traditional, unceded territories of the
