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? Do you know and understand the history of the Gay Rights Movement? Learn all the answers at our virtual workshop on Friday, June 3 from 2pm – 4:30pm PT!

We will also explore the experiences 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 members of the LGBTQIA2S+ population in your community.
