Sexual Health Wellbeing and Drug Use Harm Reduction for All Islanders
PEERS Alliance supports those living with and at risk for HIV, Hep C and all sexually transmitted infections in PEI by offering a variety of programs and services targeted diverse communities.
Our center serves people of all genders and sexual orientations. We support those who use drugs in developing strategies to reduce the risk of negative health outcomes. Our programming strives to address the underlying issues affecting the health and welfare of our communities by countering stigma and creating environments where all are welcome.
The PEI Queer Youth Collective is a project of PEERS Alliance. We offer the only community-based youth group specifically for LGBTQ2+ youth (under 18) and their allies.
The Charlottetown group meets on the second and last Tuesday of each month - September through June - at Murphy's Community Centre from 6 to 8pm. There is no cost to participate and new members are welcome to join at any time!
Note: For weather related cancelations, we follow the public school system. If Charlottetown schools are cancelled, so is group!
LGBTQ2+ Adult Drop-in meetings are hosted on the third Wednesday of every month and are open to all community members over the age of 18.
LGBTQ2+ Adult Drop-in meetings are hosted on the third Wednesday of every month and are open to all community members over the age of 18. The goal of this initiative is to provide a safer space for people anywhere on the LGBTQ2+ spectrum to gather, socialize, and connect with each other. There is no cost to participate and new members are welcome to join at any time. Come to explore community, get involved in community, meet new people, and get connected!
