Support Friends of Ruby 

Friends of Ruby creates a welcoming space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and two-spirit youth (aged 16-29), through counselling, practical supports and community services. Our low-barrier approach meets LGBTQI2S youth where they are.

Friends of Ruby needs your help

When you give to Friends of Ruby, you directly support essential services for LGBTQI2S youth. We provide meals, groceries and mental health supports for vulnerable youth. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit LGBTQI2S youth particularly hard. As a response, we’ve invested in virtual programming, chat counselling and other ways for us to safely continue to be there for young people.
