OCASI Positive Spaces Initiative Starter Kit

The Positive Spaces Initiative (PSI) was developed by OCASI to share resources and increase organizational capacity across the sector to more effectively serve LGBTQ newcomers.

The initiative is grounded in the understanding that LGBTQ newcomers are often a part of multiple communities and seek welcoming service regardless of age, race, cultural community, faith or religion, disability, gender, status, etc. The strength of Positive Spaces is in creating an environment which strives to understand the overlapping and intersecting nature of our communities.

This kit is comprised of two main components: five fact sheets and five stories drawn from interviews with LGBTQ newcomers, staff and allies who participated in the Untold Stories Project. This starter kit is part of a larger campaign intended to bring greater visibility to the specific needs and experiences of LGBTQ newcomers and staff.

The starter kit and additional promotional material is available at www.positivespaces.ca
