The Studio

Public Announcement:
The Studio will be closed for renovations until further notice and our team is currently looking for a temporary alternative location in the meantime.

Our Studio space may be under construction but our team is still here! Weather permitting, our youth can still drop by outside The Studio space during regular operating hours and the Tweeny STARS program will continue to run on Fridays as scheduled.

  • The Studio is an inclusive, youth-driven centre for 13 to 21-year-olds that openly celebrates LGBTQ+ youth while working with diverse youth from across Toronto
  • The Studio is open Monday – Thursday from 3:00 – 7:45 pm
  • LGBTQ+ youth drop-in takes place on the first Friday of every month from 3:00 – 7:45 pm

LGBTQ+ : It’s more than just the letters!

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Trans, Queer, Questioning and anyone who identifies along the sexual diversity and/or gender diversity spectrum regardless of what label you choose for yourself.

The Studio is an LGBTQ+ positive drop-in created by and for young people ages 13 to 21. Youth can come hang out, play video games, watch movies and socialize, record music and make beats in the recording studio, or check out some workshops and groups. At The Studio, we work together to create fun and interesting activities and workshops –  art making, dance, drag, sexual health workshops, discussion groups, field trips, and more. If nothing on that list stands out to you, let us know. This is your space and we’re always open to suggestions!

Here’s an example of a mobile game/tool that was created by youth in the Studio in collaboration with It’s about making decisions regarding drug use. Click on the photo to play a mobile version of the game, ‘Getting High?’

The Studio celebrates the diverse experiences of youth and strives to create a community where all youth can get engaged in building allyship. Youth who come to The Studio have real decision-making power and are invited to help create the space, and build community in partnership with Studio staff.
