uVic hosts summer retreat for LGBT students:

May 22, 2007

The University of Victoria has organized a summer retreat for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered high-school students, meant to help ease the transition to campus life and to increase awareness of the services and supports available to students. The social anxiety of teens just becoming open about their sexuality, along with the typical transitions involved in starting PSE, is often overwhelming.  The retreat includes mentoring by current students, sexual health and community activism workshops, and overnight stays on campus.
