The words "understand" and "support" are powerful for young people. The words mean someone who is on your side, accept you for who you are. For the 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, "understand" and "support" mean someone (e.g. a parent, extended family member, teacher, service provider) who may not be 2SLGBTQIA+ themselves, but who are willing to listen and support youth for who they are and speak up against 2SLGBTQIA+ discrimination.
In this session you will learn about the issues LGBTQ+ youth face and how to support youth who question their sexuality or identify as LGBTQ+.
