We're here for you, we care about you, and we want to support you!

As a part of our online programming during COVID-19, we are running two online peer support sessions for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in Hamilton each week. These are open hours, when speqtrum staff are available online to chat with you!


If you're new to speqtrum and looking for resources, or a way to connect with other 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, this is a great time to message us. We are happy to chat, answer questions, discuss our programming, provide peer + emotional support, and connect you with resources in the community. (Note: we cannot offer counselling or crisis intervention).

Peer support hours are also open to youth in our check-in program. If you're getting weekly check-ins, you can message us during peer support hours for extra chatting and support. 


During peer support hours, speqtrum staff are available on our Facebook and on Instagram, just shoot us a message to get started! If you'd like peer support and don't use either of those platforms, send us an email at

Check out our Online Events page to see when we're running peer support each week! You are always welcome to message us outside of those hours, and we will respond as we are able.
