Community Initiatives

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people face unique challenges accessing information and services that are sensitive to their health needs. With funding from Vancouver Coastal Health’s SMART Fund, QMUNITY’s Education/Outreach program was established in 1998 to help advance the health and well-being of queer individuals and communities. QMUNITY’s Education/Outreach program works directly with community members and organisations to develop and facilitate programs and services that support healthy queer living. Some of these community initiatives include:

  • Building Accessiblity Together
  • International Day Against Homophobia

Education/Outreach is responsible for conducting awareness training with service providers, developing and distributing resource materials, and coordinating community health initiatives in partnership with diverse organizations, community groups, and businesses.
