The clothing exchange
When you come visit l'astérisk for an activity or an appointment, you are welcome to check-out our clothing exchange. It is a large open concept closet always filled with various clothes and accessories to look through, try out or take home!
We know that it can be hard for 2SLGBTQIA+ folks to explore their style without judgement or stressing their their wallets. As a safe(r) space, we want to offer a space where 2SLGBTQIA+ youth are invited to share and explore their personal and professional style (even if just for a moment!) amongst supportive peers.

L'astérisk takes part in coordinating Jeune Queer Youth a pogram that offer grants for sexual and community wellness education projects by and for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. The youth leading projects are guided by a mentor in the design and development of their project.
