Positive Space is here for U of T


Positive Space has supported students, faculty and staff at the University of Toronto for 21 years, and continues to support our vibrant LGBTQ communities.

The vision of the Positive Space Campaign is that all members of the University of Toronto work to challenge discrimination based on sexual and gender diversity and are responsible for building a welcoming, supportive and inclusive campus community.

The Positive Space Campaign is organized by a committee of volunteers who work to create awareness of LGBTQ communities at the University of Toronto. The Positive Space Committee hosts events, conducts educational initiatives, and shares information with all members of the campus community. This mission is guided by the following values:

  • Increasing visibility for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students, staff and faculty
  • Promoting equity, inclusion and intersectional understandings of identity
  • Creating a campus culture for engagement and change
  • Fostering pride, belonging and community

We need you to create Positive Space.

Whether it’s supporting fellow LGBTQ classmates or colleagues, being an ally, putting up a Positive Space poster in your community space, or joining the Positive Space Committee and volunteering your time to make U of T a better place, we need you to create Positive Space.
