LGBTQ2S+ Interagency group

This website was built by Calgary’s own LGBTQ2S+ Inter-agency group. This group exists to create and advocate for inclusivity for gender and sexual diversity through welcoming and affirming spaces, policies, and services.

Queer Compass is a centralized resource database for Individuals and Service Providers living and working within the gender and sexually diverse community. The resources contained on this site can help facilitate finding much needed services as well as aid in fostering community connection for gender and sexually diverse people. 

Resources can be browsed by the type of service that is being looked for or by searching for services linked to specific gender and sexually diverse identities 

This resource database is not an exhaustive list and we encourage folks to reach out if they have a resource they would like to see added.
