Gender Group is an ever-evolving therapeutic group at Peak House. Peak House is a live-in program for 13 to 18-year-olds of all genders who are struggling with problematic substance use, exploitation and oppression in their lives. This article explores Gender Group’s historical and current attempts to make space while resisting sexualised and gendered violence, cisnormativity and heteronormativity.
