Welcome to Kind Space!

A 2SLGBTQIA+ Community Centre in Odawa/Ottawa

 

Kind Space is a community centre in Ottawa – unceded Algonquin territory – that offers resources, events, social and educational programming. Our work celebrates, supports, and prioritizes oppressed sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions.

Who We AreAccessibility

Co-Create Kindness!

We thrive when we’re surrounded by love and support.

When 2SLGBTQ+ individuals are deprived of meaningful relationships and support systems, their mental health and overall well-being drastically suffer, especially when combined with the impact of other aspects of their identities or experiences.

That’s why Kind Space (formerly Pink Triangle Services) was established. We provide a welcoming environment of rest, care, connection, and education that is open to 2SLGBTQ+ people of all ages throughout the year. We are the only community space in Ottawa that offers such a safe and inclusive space.
