2SLGBTQ+ Youth & Gender Based Violence (GBV) Consultation

In 2018, Wisdom2Action undertook a consultation with youth from 2SLGBTQ+ communities to explore their experiences of gender-based violence (GBV) and inform recommendations to address how GBV impacts 2SLGBTQ+ young people. 

Over the course of 6 months, we consulted more than 500 youth across Canada, and created a final report with key recommendations to inform future initiatives on local, provincial, and national levels to support 2SLGBTQ+ youth.

While there is a degree of data available on the extent to which GBV impacts 2SLGBTQ+ youth, there is much less that centers the needs, experiences, recommendations, and voices of 2SLGBTQ+ youth themselves. This report represents a first-of-its-kind contribution to the 2SLGBTQ+ and Gender-Based Violence sectors through a youth-led qualitative exploration of 2SLGBTQ+ youth perspectives and recommendations on addressing GBV.
