In the wake of a profound loss, Marginalized Majority emerged as a beacon of resilience and hope, born from the legacy of Sarah Hegazi. Sarah, a courageous advocate for LGBTQ+ rights in the face of adversity, left an indelible mark on our hearts and inspired the creation of this movement. Sarah's untimely passing served as a wake-up call, compelling us to channel grief into action. Her passing was a tragedy that compelled us to confront the stark realities faced by global south, immigrant, and other marginalized LGBTQIA+ intersectional identities. As we mourned her loss, we recognized the unique emotional and mental health needs of these communities and are committed to addressing them with empathy, understanding, and a vision of fostering healing, belonging, community, and a culture of care.
to support and uplift the voices and experiences of global south, immigrant, and other marginalized LGBTQIA+ intersectional identities. We stand at the forefront of a movement dedicated to centering healing as we strive to create spaces that nurture belonging, community, and a culture of care rooted in decolonial practice. We are deeply committed to furthering education and implementing programs that specifically cater to the emotional and mental health needs of those often overlooked and marginalized within the LGBTQIA+ community.
Our vision for Marginalized Majority is one of inclusivity and empowerment. We envision a world where the global south, immigrants, and all marginalized LGBTQIA+ intersectional identities feel not only seen and heard but also deeply valued. Through education and programs tailored to their unique needs, we aim to create a network of support that extends across borders and boundaries, uniting communities in Canada and beyond.
To turn our vision into reality, Marginalized Majority is committed to developing and implementing comprehensive programs. These programs will be a blend of workshops, evidence-based research initiatives, and the creation of safe spaces designed to address the emotional and mental health needs of visible and invisible minorities within the LGBTQIA2S+ community in Canada. By providing a platform for connection and collective progress, we strive to alleviate the burdens of social inequality that disproportionately affect the most vulnerable among us.
As we embark on this journey, we carry with us the memory of those who inspired us to stand up and be counted. Marginalized Majority is more than an organization; it is a collective commitment to progress, equality, and the inherent worth of every individual within our diverse and beautiful community. Together, we move forward, guided by our mission, fueled by our vision, and bound by the unbreakable ties of solidarity.
Central to Marginalized Majority is our commitment to creating a culture of care. We understand that the intersectionality of identities within the LGBTQIA+ community demands a nuanced and thoughtful approach. By centering healing, belonging, and community, we aim to foster safe spaces that serve as havens for those who often bear the weight of social inequality within the Queer community.
