Queering Sex Ed - Resources

Queering Sex Ed was a short term project at Planned Parenthood Toronto. A Youth Advisory Committee of LGBTQ* youth came together to create sex education resources for other LGBTQ* youth that spoke to their needs and experiences. These PDFs are a result of their hard work. Queering Sex Ed videos can be found on PPT’s YouTube channel.

Getting Ready for Your Appointment

 


 

 

Have you heard? PPT transitioned to a new EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system! Because of this big change, instead of drop-in, we’ll have same-day appointments to serve you better!

  No drop-in? No problem!

 You’ll be able to book a same-day appointment for the day you call. Just give us a call in the morning and we’ll book you in. Call early, as these appointments book up fast and availability is first-come, first-served. Same-Day appointments are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, usually beginning at 1pm until 7:30pm.

  

Saturdays will continue to have drop in hours for sexual health matters only (STI tests, pregnancy tests/options, etc.) From 10:00AM to 2:00PM.

 

Call the clinic at 416-961-0113 x121 for details!
Unfortunately, we are unable to book appointments through e-mail. If you wish to book an appointment, you must call the number above.
