Support services: In person and Virtual Our groups are held in person at Thompson Rivers University. Occasionally, events are facilitated through a virtual format, depending on the event. The ASK Wellness Society Health Educator uses a combination of lived experience and education to create both individualized and group-based supports for members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Supports are based upon each individual person’s needs and abilities, ensuring diverse assistance. Folks can access emotional support, connections to resources, transportation to appointments, and physical and mental health navigation. Group supports are also offered and are oriented to connect members of the Queer community with one another. Together, group members work through personal situations while also exploring new topics. Requirements for accessing group supports include being above the age of 19 and identifying as a part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. The 2SLGBTQ+ programming through ASK Wellness Society is overseen by the Health Educator who has a combination of both lived Queer experience, as well as education. The groups are adjusted, as needed, to accommodate as many individuals as possible. Individual support is given on an as-needed basis to participants who require further assistance in navigating their physical health, mental health, gender identity, and sexual orientation. For people who are interested in participating, intake forms are mandatory for both group work and one-on-one assistance. If interested, please contact the Health Educator for assistance. There are two group programs that are currently being offered, Queer Connections and Queer Qrew. Both groups meet on a bi-weekly basis. The dates and times of these groups tend to change each semester, in order to accommodate the needs of the facilitators.

The group also aims to facilitate physical, social and emotional impacts of gender transition and to create a space to foster community support and connection. It is a safe meeting place for all trans and gender diverse people who have undergone, or who are interested in accessing, gender-affirming medical care (or alternatives). Whether you are nervous about an upcoming surgery or hormones, want to share your wisdom, or just want to connect with other trans people moving through the medical system — all are welcome. Come meet other folks to chat, share resources and tips, and learn from each other. The Gender Journeys Outreach Community Support Worker is here to provide confidential one-on-one support, referral and resources when needed.

Since many transgender folks struggle to find a place in our binary world, and are often targets of violence and oppression and are often segregated and isolated, a skilled practitioner is needed help vulnerable folks navigate, colonial, and systemically oppressive systems to ensure Gender Variant Folks can receive competent care.

These include discrimination and stigmatization, hate crimes, public ridicule, the rejection of family and friends, loss of employment, and failure to achieve promotion.
