SILK (Sexual Information Leads to Knowledge) is an educational program that provides English speaking high schools with free workshops geared to increase awareness and knowledge on sexual orientation, gender identity, diversity and inclusivity. This programs aims to dispel homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, queerphobia, intersexism and heterosexism to help make schools a safer space for all students.
ur workshops aim to provide students of all sexual identities with:
- a non-judgmental space within which to discuss issues of sexual and gender identity
- knowledge to identify queer and transphobic behaviour within their everyday interactions
- practical strategies to reduce this type of behaviour in everyday situations
- greater empathy with the struggle of growing up queer, trans or questioning one’s sexual or gender identity
- information about key resources available to youth in Montreal
Our volunteers are diverse in age, ethnocultural and religious backgrounds, gender identity, sexual orientation and personality, and have all passed rigorous training sessions. They are all capable of speaking about a wide range of issues on sexual health, orientation, and diversity through open discussion and question and answers.
