How do I support a youth who identifies as LGBTQIA2S+? What do all of the letters mean? What is PRIDE? What contributions have LGBTQIA2S+ people made to our world? What defines the culture? This workshop will develop and enrich your knowledge of the LGBTQIA2S+ culture, community and share the history of the struggles faced. Do you know and understand the history of the Gay Rights Movement? We will also explore what youth are experiencing in today’s political and community environment. We will learn the ‘lingo’ and gain an understanding of personal identity development, the coming out process, and examine supportive steps you can take to help youth in your care and community.
