The QueerSmart Newsletter is a quarterly e-zine letter that we launched in August 2020. It comprises educational materials, resources, videos, articles, with a focus on enhancing inclusive practices, tips, and resources for culturally safe programs and service delivery.
With content created of submissions by community members and curated by our Education & Training team, this newsletter helps agencies and professionals navigate LGBTQ2SAI+ inclusion in the workplace and service delivery.
Contributions to this newsletter will also be published on the Blog page of our website.
Frequency: Quarterly – February, May, August, November
Contributors are invited to write:
A blog, a commentary, an article, a text, or a poem, to reflect and express their own thoughts, lived experiences, knowledge, and share messages on inclusivity and diversity. Publications in the newsletter can feature their name or be anonymous.
We encourage anyone who is interested to submit a contribution. You don’t need to have an educational or professional experience in writing to make a submission.
