New intern

Holà!

My name is Marie-Claire. I study sexology at UQAM and I’m very glad to be doing an internship in an environment as open as Project 10.

I like to read, to write, and to over-use sarcasm. I have a weird obsession with the game ”Name the Flag” (I swear, it’s really fun. I dare anyone to try to beat my highest score. I’m a pro.  It won’t happen! :p) and with history books. I like to find new hobbies to practice. I went from dancing ballet do playing rugby. I don’t shy away from trying something new and I love to meet new people.

À l’occasion, du défilé de la fierté, l’Astérisk invite tous les groupes jeunesses LGBTQ* ainsi que les jeunes LGBTQ* et leurs allié.es de 25 ans et moins à défiler ensemble le dimanche 17 août.

L’Astérisk, un projet mis de l’avant par Projet 10 (p10.qc.ca), Jeunesse Lambda (jeunesselambda.org) et la Coalition jeunesse montréalaise de lutte à l’homophobie (coalitionjeunesse.org). L’Astérisk est un milieu de vie sécuritaire pour les jeunes LGBTQ* de 25 ans et moins. Divers services y sont offerts, dont une ligne d’écoute téléphonique, du soutien individuel, un centre de soir (« drop-in ») et des activités sociales diverses. Nous sommes situés au 1575 rue Amherst à Montréal.

Nous désirons que L’Astérisk devienne un lieu de rassemblement pour nous permettre à nous, jeunes LGBTQ*, de bâtir et renforcer nos liens et nos communautés. L’Astérisk aspire à être un espace de création où les projets foisonnent, où il sera possible de s’organiser socialement, politiquement, ludiquement ou de toute autre manière que nous déciderons collectivement.

À noter que le thème de cette année est ORANGE et que vous êtes invité.es à vous exprimer tel que vous le sentez en lien avec cette couleur (on va aussi avoir beaucoup de tissus orange à votre disposition). Bien sûr, vous êtes invité.es à porter et afficher les couleurs de vos groupes.

Coordonnateur des activités d’été à l’Astérisk

For the pride parade l’Astérisk invite all the LGBTQ* Youth Groups and all the LGBTQ* youth and their allies of less than 25 years old to march together Sunday the 17th of August.

L’Astérisk, a project of Project 10 (p10.qc.ca), Jeunesse Lambda (jeunesselambda.org) and the Montreal Youth Coalition Against Homophobia (coalitionjeunesse.org). L’Astérisk is a safer space for LGBTQ* youth (under 25) to hang out and have access to various resources. Different services are offered, including a listening line, individual support, a drop-in (free period of activities) and social events. We are located at 1575 Amherst Street in Montreal.

We hope that L’Astérisk becomes a place of gathering to let us, LGBTQ* youth, build and strengthen our relationships and our communities. L’Astérisk aspires to be a space of creation where projects teem, where it is possible to organize ourselves socially, politically, casually or in any other way that we decide collectively.

Please note that this year’s theme is ORANGE and you are invited to express yourselves as you feel with this color (we will also have a lot of orange fabric)! Of course, you’re also invited to wear and show the colours of your own group.

If you want to walk with us, confirm your or your group’s presence so we can let you know later our meeting spot so we can all go together to de Pride Parade!

P-10 Closed July 14-27

So Remy and Sarah are on vacation for 2 weeks, which means P-10 is closed July 14th-27th. It looks like drop-in will be open July 17th, and the youth committee of L’Astérisk may put something together for the 24th (stay tuned on our Facebook Page for updates).

Some times it is a really bummer to feel without resources, but there are other resources in the community, and this might be a good chance to connect. (check out their summer schedules to make sure its a match)

For trans* & gender related support, check out ASTT(e)Q or the Centre for Gender Advocacy

Under 18 and needs to talk? Kids Help Phone (any subject, any time)

Over 18 and needs to talk about sexuality, feeling in crisis, having suicidal thoughts (or call 9-1-1 for emergencies!)

There’s also the West Island Youth Centre to check out
