Growing up is challenging. Being yourself should not be.
Many students and families are challenged by societal stigmas associated with being gay, nonbinary, or transgender. These stigmas include a lack of visibility in school curriculum or culture, respect from peers or adults, and exclusion. Equality means different things to different people, and yet some students struggle in silence.
The Office of Family and Community Engagement will hold a panel discussion, the first in a series of supports, for LGBTQ+ families and their advocates. The discussion can be attended anonymously, with questions submitted prior to the event. The panel will consist of parents of LGBTQ+ youth, students, teachers, and counselors and provide general information and insights.
