With your support, we can give even more 2SLGBTQI people the greatest gift of all – the gift of belonging.
Over 60% of 2SLGBTQI students felt unsafe being their authentic selves at school – impacting their sense of safety, well-being, and belonging.

How your donations impact 2SLGBTQI lives
Here are some examples of how your Gift of Belonging has significant impacts for 2SLGBTQI communities:
Research is the foundation of our work and informs everything we do at Egale. Centering 2SLGBTQI experiences, our research is community-based, participatory, and action-oriented. The reports we publish are used nationally, and often globally, to create positive change for 2SLGBTQI people.
Education is essential in building more inclusive and accessible spaces for 2SLGBTQI people. Leveraging the research data, we create educational products and resources in order to enable change, particularly in schools, workplaces, healthcare, and justice sectors.
Our awareness initiatives and campaigns elevate the voices of 2SLGBTQI communities and draw attention to some of the most pressing issues in order to inform and inspire the general public to begin their own journeys in inclusivity and belonging, starting with our educational resources.
Our legal advocacy work aims to protect 2SLGBTQI people in policy and legislation at all levels of government and beyond. This complements our research, education, and awareness initiatives to ensure the work we do has lasting impact.
