Helem Montréal

Organization dedicated to LGBTQIA+ communities from South-West Asia and North Africa and/or Arabic-speaking communities in Montreal.


Too many are the MENA countries (Middle East and North Africa) which still criminalize homosexuality. These intolerable laws even have repercussions in Montreal, where LGBTQ2+ people from these countries often live in fear and isolation. Helem Montreal aims to be a place of activism, awareness, reflection, socialization and safety. Helem Montreal aims to fight homophobia within the Arabic-speaking community of Montreal by promoting the visibility of LGBTQ2+ people with an emphasis on intersectionality. Everyone is welcome with us!
