Trans Youth Deserve Safety –

Affirm United would like to express our continued support for transgender and gender-diverse youth. Youth across the country must be supported to live as their authentic selves.

These newly introduced policies in provincial jurisdictions are not based on evidence and will cause irreparable harm to trans and gender diverse youth. To base proposed policies in misinformation and discrimination is irresponsible.

AUSE stands firm in support of 2SLGBTQ+ youth, and against any form of discrimination or intimidation that puts the lives of 2SLGBTQ+ youth at risk.

To the trans youth witnessing this hatred, know that we see you and honour you, just as you are. Even if your government tells you otherwise, you deserve to live a life of authenticity and joy. We see you and we love you.
