LGBTQ2S+ is an acronym that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and/or two-spirit (2S). The + sign represents any other non-heteronormative or non-cisnormative identity, orientation or experience (for example, questioning, intersex, asexual, pansexual and aromantic).

Equality: an important value

One of the fundamental values of Quebec and Canada is equality. This value also applies to people with other, non-heteronormative identities, orientations and experiences.

Though Quebec and Canada strive to promote equality, there are still people who are prejudiced against those who are different. Social-psychological support is available if you or one of your loved ones identifies as LGBTQ2S+ or is questioning their identity. Contact SERY (Solidarité ethnique régionale de la Yamaska) for help with a referral (see the Contact person section below).
