Calendar

If you have any questions about the events and how to participate, contact services@transestrie.org.

We will be closed from June 10th to June 14th, and on June 24th.

Drop-In Periods

Drop-in periods are from 4pm to 7pm on Mondays and Fridays.

The drop-in periods allow you to come to our office without having made an appointment with us.

Whether it’s to ask questions to our staff, grab a book, pick up gender-affirming gear, or simply take advantage of our wifi and couches, you will be warmly welcomed!

"Éclats de fierté ensoleillés" Lunches

During the school year, TransEstrie opens its doors a few lunchtimes a week to welcome 2SLGBTQ+ students from nearby schools. Safe from anti-LGBT acts and bullying, these young people can come together and share their experiences to build resilience and prevent negative impacts on their mental health.

The space is open between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

This initiative is made possible by Christine Labrie’s Fonds d’investissement citoyen. We’d like to thank Christine Labrie and the public for their support!

Discussion Groups

Trans, non-binary and questioning adults (18+)

From 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays. The discussion groups are a place to meet other adults who have a similar experience in order to discuss different topics, related or not to transness. It takes place at 69 rue Wellington Nord, Sherbrooke.

This month, the group for adults is on Thursday the 20th.

Trans, non-binary and questioning teens (14-17)

Café causerie midi-ZOOM - L'accès à la transition légale et le jugement de la cour d'appel​

April 16th, from 12am to 1pm. This event is online, and held in French.

Our Cafés causeries are discussions on a different topic each month, open to everyone and sometimes featuring a guest speaker. Our midi-ZOOM events are perfect for those who want to squeeze a bit of learning and sharing into their work day!

This month, we demystify access to legal transition, especially after last month’s Court of Appeal ruling changing these laws for minors. All are welcome!

Community supper

June 28th, from 4 pm to 7 pm.

Our community dinners are an opportunity to connect with others in our communities while sharing a good meal. Bring food to share!

Other Activities

June 7th and 21st, 4pm-7pm.

The 21st will be the last crochet activity of the season!

Are you a senior who’d like to forge intergenerational links with the community’s youth, break isolation and take part in a fun activity? Do you know someone who would be interested? Join us at our Crocheting the Rainbow event! You can learn to crochet packers and breastforms, two items that help trans, non-binary and questioning people live authentically and comfortably in their own bodies.

You’re welcome at any level of experience, even if you’ve never crocheted before! There’s nothing to bring: all materials are generously provided in partnership with Tricot Thé Serré. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

We’d especially like to thank Horizon pour les ainés: their financial support makes this project possible.

June 17th, from 4pm to 7pm.
 
We know that sexual health is important! However, it can be intimidating to get tested as an LGBTQ+ person, with fears of not being understood or of experiencing violence.
 
On March 11th 2024, from 4pm to 7pm (during our drop-in), we’re offering you a safe and affirming space to get tested! In collaboration with SIDEP and IRIS Estrie, everyone is welcome to take a proactive step towards their sexual health. On-site staff are knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ issues.

We’ll be swearing in your name and gender change applications from 1 to 6 pm on June 28th!

You can make an appointment to have your name and/or sex marker change request sworn in at any time by contacting services@transestrie.org.

June 25, bimodally. We welcome you starting at 4pm, and the meeting will run from 5pm to 8pm.

Help us steer TransEstrie in the best direction for our communities: attend our Annual General Meeting! We’ll be presenting our action plan for the current year, discussing our activity report and finances, and electing members to our administrative board.
