Creating a Safe Space for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Students

March 17, 2016

Presented by Louie Marven, Executive Director, LGBT Center of Central PA

It is a dynamic time of progress for LGBTQ people, but this progress is happening unevenly. There are news stories of same-gender couples attending prom together, and stories of the harsh consequences of bullying faced by LGBTQ youth in schools. Why are responses so different? In this session, we will work toward creating a common language around LGBTQ youth in schools, discuss the environment faced by LGBTQ youth in schools, and learn strategies for creating a safe learning environment for LGBTQ youth on individual and institutional levels.
