Guide to Coalition-Building with Queer Groups and Organizations

Keywords Intersectionality, Equity, 2SLGBTQIA+ Coalition Building


The Enchanté Network connects and supports 2SLGBTQIA+ community organizations across Canada. This Guide provides practices for building coalitions across 2SLGBTQIA+ and other equity-seeking groups and organizations though an intersectional lens.

Policy & Practice Implications

  • Equity-seeking groups and organizations can practice intersectionality by adapting the Guide’s tools and templates for their own contexts.
  • Representation of identities and lived experiences, reciprocal relationships, open communication, and trust can guide coalition-building with 2SLGBTQIA+ groups and organizations.
  • Understanding and applying intersectionality in planning, communicating, and strategizing can help organizations build stronger coalitions with each other and the equity-seeking groups they serve.
  • Organizations can distinguish between negotiable and non-negotiable nuances of an equity-seeking group to strengthen relationships and build trust.
