Events

Due to financial constraints caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we do not currently have a physical space. As a result we have been forced to suspend our Queer Youth Programs until further notice. Once we are financially able we will be relocating to a new space and our youth programs will once again start back up.

Upcoming Edmonton Queer Youth Events

HERE IS WHERE EVENTS WILL GO, LOOKING FOR A VIABLE OPTION WITH A CALENDAR THAT SUPPORTS EVENTBRITE.

Sex Positive

Sex positive is a term to reflect a set of values, beliefs and attitudes regarding sexual activity as a healthy, pleasurable form of human expression. At ASPECC we promote and embrace consensual sexuality in all it’s diversity. Active consent plays an integral role in our sex positivity and is strictly required to be utilized at the centre.

Sexuality is a very diverse topic that includes the type of people we are attracted to, the types of activities that bring us sexual pleasure, and the freedom to celebrate our sexuality in ways that are meaningful to us. At ASPECC we are always seeking ways to help others find comfort with their own sexuality and to learn and accept the sexuality of others.

Sex positivity encourages open and safe communication, ethics, consent, empowerment of sexual minorities, and the resolution of various social problems that are associated with sexuality.

Safe(r) Space

Safe(r) Space

ASPECC spaces are SAFE(R) SPACES, meaning we have zero tolerance for discrimination, prejudicial behaviour, bullying, harassment or any other disruptive or negative behaviours. We have strict rules against any hateful speech or actions. Those who cannot abide by these rules will be unable to attend the Centre. The Safe(r) Space Title above this paragraph can be clicked on to download our Safe(r) Space Guidelines.

​To be VERY clear:

At ASPECC we not only welcome persons of all sexualities, races, body types, genders, abilities, religions and cultures (and any other label you might wonder about), we will uphold the right of all members to be treated with dignity, respect and decency.

Anyone who wishes to demonstrate aggressive or hateful behaviours will be removed from the premises. Our staff is trained to handle all complaints regarding aggression and discrimination. PLEASE, if you have any problems with any staff or attendee, notify us at your earliest convenience.
