WHAT IS THE NS 

GSA CONFERENCE?

The GSA Conference is an opportunity for students in junior high and highschool, as well as GSA facilitators, to come together and meet 2SLGBTQIA+ peers and allies across the province, build upon their knowledge and skill-sets, and take their learnings back to their schools and communities.

TRANS SOCIAL

This year, we are providing a closed social space for all trans, non-binary, Two-Spirit, and gender non-conforming youth to hang out, meet their peers, and play some JackBox games with Youth Project staff, Skye Cross!

This will happen on the evening of Saturday, November 28th, from 7-8 and we ask that folks register ahead of time. 
 

IN OUR TENTH YEAR

We are hoping that this year's theme "Transformative Futures" will be a catalyst for exciting and thoughtful conversations around youth leadership, fighting for liberation, imagining resilient community care frameworks, and intentionally centering 2SQTBIPOC experience and knowledge systems.


This year, we are excited to announce our keynote speaker: Jade Byard Peek. In addition to this keynote, we will have an Anti-Oppression panel facilitated by Kate Macdonald, Naomi Bird, Teo Ferguson, and Carmel Farahbakhsh. 

Over the course of two-days, participants will have the option to register for four workshops - ranging in topics from Disability Justice, Queerness and Faith, Drag for Beginners, Youth in Action, Two-Spirit Identity, Decolonizing Art Practice, Poetry Writing, Creating Engaging GSA Support, Asexuality, Queering Sexual Health, etc! Please check the schedule for more information about each workshop and the brilliant facilitators. 

Our lunchtime sessions will be packed with exciting drag performances, poetry readings, and music, as well as a trivia game hosted by our Youth Board. On Saturday evening, we will be hosting a closed social for trans, non-binary, Two-Spirit, and gender non-conforming youth with more games and activities.
