Release Date and Last Update
October 11th 2020 (updated on November 30th 2020)
The regional group of social intervention of the Eastern Township is proud to offer a demystification service about sexual and gender diversity by broadcasting 10 videos which are financed by the government of Canada and the help of Centraide Estrie. The first three videos have been broadcasted for the international coming out day, October 11th 2020. The next seventh [have been] released in the [following] weeks.
“How did you find out about your sexual orientation?”, “Was it hard to accept your sexual orientation?”, “How did your parents react to your coming out?”: the videos answer to some questions which are up to date nowadays. Lasting up to two minutes, the videos are subtitled in English. These lead up to ten gay, lesbian, bisexual or pansexual panelists who are from the GRIS Estrie and the GRIS Montreal. From small testimonies, these people answer the most asked questions of their interventions with teenagers.

To Access the Tool
These videos very clearly answer relevant questions that many have about sexual diversity. Most of these videos also feature people from different backgrounds and cultures, which makes for a very enriching experience.
However, while an effort has been made to represent different realities and sexual orientations, the lack of gender diversity representatives (or at least they are not clearly identified) is felt.
Thus, indicating at the very beginning of the description that the organization “is proud to offer a demystification service about sexual and gender diversity by broadcasting 10 videos” is rather misleading. This would likely be disappointing for those who want to watch these videos in hopes of understanding the reality of trans and/or binary people.
