We celebrate WorldPride 2014 with two simple truths.
It doesn’t matter who you love, as long as you love. And being LGBTQ is not a choice.
It’s estimated that up to 40% of youth experiencing homelessness self-identify as LGBTQ. Too often, discrimination they face forces LGBTQ youth into a life on the streets.
Everyone deserves a safe place to call home, a place where they’re respected and accepted for who they are.
Virgin Mobile RE*Generation provides support to prevent at-risk youth from entering the cycle of homelessness, and creates opportunities to help those already caught in the cycle emerge into a brighter future.
Our new Virgin Mobile RE*Generation partner LGBT Youth Line provides peer to peer support to reduce isolation and let LGBTQ youth in Ontario know they are not alone. These conversations are key in ensuring youth get support when they need it the most. LGBT Youth Line works diligently to ensure youth have safe place to call when home might not be safe. Check out Youthline.ca to learn more or if you are a youth call our help line Sunday to Friday 4:00pm – 9:30pm toll free 1-800-268-9688.
We're proud of how Virgin Mobile RE*Generation is helping, with lots of love coming in from our Members and other Canadians to help make a big change.
You can do some good too.
