little sister is a grassroots, youth-led, youth-focused artist resource centre. we are queer, not queer, racialized, living in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, artists, and many other things.
our mission is to reduce barriers in the arts and entertainment industries for BIPOC + 2SLGBTQ+ youth artists by creating safer performance spaces, providing educational workshops, and developing resources for young artists.
we have run the community-based open mic series hummingbird since 2015, reaching over 1,000 youth artists and community members in Toronto.
In 2020 we published our findings in the 2020 report “It Feels Like Having a Sugar Daddy. But like in the Worst Way: Thoughts from Racialized 2SLGBTQ+ Youth Artists in the Toronto Arts Scene.”
