The Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line, founded in 1994,[1] is a Toronto-based peer support organization for LGBT youth. Although best known for their phone support line,[2][3] the organization also offers Internet chat and e-mail support services, as well as promoting and supporting other events and programs for LGBT youth.

In 2011 the Youth Line, in conjunction with Toronto City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, created an award, named in memory of Toronto artist Will Munro, to honour LGBT youth involved in community arts projects in Ontario.[4]
