The Why: Essie’s Place has been formed to better understand the Quality of Life(QOL) levels of LGBTIQ2SA+ people in the Shuswap Region. We humbly acknowledge that this work will take place on the lands and territories of First Nations Communities in the Shuswap Region. Further, as allies and/or members of BIPOC and/or additional minority communities, we want to find ways, together, to work equally, equitably with our LGBTIQ2SA+ BIPOC, and/or additional minority communities. Through engaging compassionately, gently and openly, we hope community members will come together to eventually lead work about how to better meet the needs of our community, in all areas affecting their Quality of Life(QOL).
We know as siblings of LGBTIQ2SA+ people, you have had different experiences than some of your peers. We would like to learn about these experiences with the hope of improving services and supports for you, should you ever want or need them.
