community organizations, family counsellor, The 519, support groups for queer spawn, family counseling
Tara: So there are all kinds of um, programming for LGTBQ families at places like the 519.
Tara: Have you ever been um, compelled is probably too strong of a word, have you ever thought maybe you’d like to go there or join some of the activities there?
Victoria: So it’s really interesting because I actually just started talking to a family counsellor last week--
Victoria: because things have just kind of been escalating a little I’ll say in terms of some of the tensions and conflicts. And she had suggested looking into the 519, and I had not gone to the 519, or even kind of really thought about it. But there had been an advertisement that had come home from my daughter’s school-
Victoria: Last year, about some groups for young people whose parents are LGBTQ--
Victoria: and would she be interested? And she was definitely not interested in that. Um and I had uh, my partner and I had actually um, done some family counselling, just the two of us-
Victoria: With someone last year who had suggested some different things, but nothing ever came to fruition from it.
Victoria: But it wasn't specific to the 519 or groups like that, it was more just suggestions to try and help us navigate some of the tough situations we are facing.
