Volunteer for Pride House at Arctic Winter Games 2020
Queer Yukon Society is proud to partner with the Whitehorse 2020 Arctic Winter Games to offer a Pride House to participating athletes. Pride House will serve as a safe space at the Yukon College Campus for queer, questioning and allied youth to hang out and access resources and supports during the Games. Volunteers of Queer Yukon Society will host the space, provide resources, a friendly ear and ensure the space remains free from hate and discrimination.
The athletic world is a tough place for LGTBQ2s+ Youth. Help us create a safe and supportive space for them so they can have the most positive games experience possible.
