Monoceros Education Society was founded in early spring 2020 by a group of queer young people passionate about peer education and creating programs to fill in the gaps we were seeing in our community.
The mission of Monoceros Education Society is to create and provide educational and skill-developing workshops, programming and opportunities for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community with a focus on youth and those facing multiple barriers.
Monoceros Education Society operates on the traditional and unceded territories of the Lkwungen speaking peoples of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations and the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.
We would like to acknowledge the rich and vibrant artistic practices of the Coast Salish Nations as well as those across Turtle Island that, along with their people, have faced persecution and attempted destruction by forces of colonization both past and present. Great honour and respect to the generations that have worked to keep these traditions alive, and to all those contributing to their revitalization today.
In the context of our Sex Ed work, we would also like to acknowledge the history and present reality of these lands being taken without consent and the imposition of colonial genders and sexualities.
