Education for red deer and the                     surrounding areas                               

Welcome to LGBTQeducation.com.

This website has been designed to inform our communities about the challenges LGBTQ persons face everyday in the community and how we can all help. It is also a place for our community to get together and have fun.

The goal of this resource is to provide a place for youth, students, teachers, parents, and the general community to go to ask questions and find answers. It is also a place to post events, meet new people, and have fun.  It is time for a strong support system for LGBTQ and allies in our community.

 

Who we are

     It all started  when a rather large group of college students got together at Red Deer College (Red Deer College Pride on Campus) and decided we need a stronger support system in our communities. 

     In speaking with the LGBT Youth of Red Deer, the need for a strong support system through one voice and united website is needed.

     This site was created on September 22, 2011. It fell to the sidelines for a while, but I hope that in 2014 it will become something again.

 

     Who are we? We are your neighbors, your friends, and your family.

 

     What does LGBTQ and Allies stand for?

- Lesbian, Gay or Genderqueer, Bisexual, Transgendered/Transsexual/Two-spirited, Queer/Questioning, and supporters. 

   There are so many different variations out there. If you would like a new term or definition added, contact us through the "ask a question" feature or e-mail us (lgbtqeducation@hotmail.ca).

 

 Goals of this website:

- to support the LGBTQ community.

- to answer the questions everyone is too afraid to ask.

- to give youth a place to go when they have no where else.

- to give teachers the resources to help the LGBTQ youth in their schools.

- to give parents the answers they need in how to support their LGBTQ child.

- to change our communities into a place where LGBTQ's are not afraid to be themselves.
