AUSU is proud to announce our new 2SLGBTQIA+ Coalition Discord Server

In the spirit of inclusivity and support for our unique membership, AUSU has launched a new Discord server for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community at Athabasca University.

Unlike traditional brick and mortar universities, AU’s online platform lacks a variety of student clubs and networks. However, we see this as an advantage rather than a barrier, as it allows us to bring together students from across Canada and the globe.

The AUSU 2SLGBTQIA+ Coalition Discord Server was developed to celebrate and support sexual and gender diversity at AU. It is intended to be a safe space for the community to find support, make friends, and chat about their experiences. All allies, supporters, and friends are encouraged to join as well.  

Join our community, and stay tuned for upcoming announcements and events!

Please make sure to read the Discord community rules carefully. The platform is moderated to ensure it is a safe space, free from harassment, discrimination, slurs, doxxing, spamming, or illicit behaviour.

2SLGBTQIA+ Resources

We have also compiled an extensive 2SLGBTQIA+ resource page including:

  • Mental Health Support
  • National support and resources
  • Provincial support and resources
  • Athabasca University-specific courses and resources
  • The Voice Magazine specific articles
  • 2SLGBTQIA+ related publications by Athabasca University professors

Student are welcome to make additions to the committee resource page! Add your resources suggestion in the comments, and AUSU moderators will add it to the official list!

You can access the resource page here, or through the Discord server.

Feel free to reach out for more information or just to chat! For any questions, email [email protected]
