Due to the current COVID-19 health situation, all peer support groups have moved online. Sign up and/or get more information for each group through the contact details found in the group descriptions below.

It’s not just you. People are complicated … to find!

We all seem to be in the same boat regarding the difficulties in meeting other like-minded folks. If only we were also in the same room! But our peer groups are a good place to start—check out how we can help you meet, share your experiences, or just have fun with others below.

And if you are feeling shy, you can always email us at reception@qmunity.ca and we’ll hook you up!

Please note that all of our support groups are peer-run and by volunteer facilitators not by professionals, unless stated otherwise in the group description.

Autistic Queer Peers

A peer support group for autistic queer and trans people who are 18 years or older and who currently reside in the province of BC.

This social group is about creating connections and providing the opportunity for friendly discussions in a low-social-pressure, semi-structured, and lightly-moderated digital environment.

People who are questioning are welcome. That includes all questioning folks, including people who are autistic and questioning whether or not they are queer or trans and people who are queer or trans and questioning whether or not they are autistic.

All diagnoses are welcome, including formally diagnosed, self-diagnosed, and questioning. We recognize the financial barriers of diagnosis and do not require a diagnosis for participation or assign people value based on diagnosis status. We welcome folks with varying levels of support needs.

How do you sign up to attend? Email autisticqueerpeers@qmunity.ca with the subject line “Autistic Queer Support Group” and in the body of the email please share your first name and confirm that you live in BC and are 18 years of age or older. You will receive back further instructions on how to attend our meetings as well as an information package on what to expect from the group.

Feeling nervous about attending? You will not be required to interact with other participants verbally (you can instead use message functions if that is easier for you). You can keep your camera off if appearing on-screen seems intimidating or tiring. You can also choose not to interact at all and attend just to listen.
