ROCQY is a collective of rural 2SLGBTQ+ youth from across what is currently colonially known as Ontario. Created by and for rural and Northern 2SLGBTQ+ youth ROCQY was founded to address the barriers that rural 2SLBTQ+ youth face in accessing mental health care. Together we work to build leadership skills, foster a sense of community, and address social justice issues. ROCQY meets bi-weekly with virtual synchronous gatherings and will have an in-person gathering annually. ROCQY’s purpose is for Two-Spirit, queer and trans youth to have fun, learn, and grow.
