There is nothing more powerful than hearing directly from young people as they speak about their school experiences. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn from the experts: the students themselves. Participants will hear about what challenges our LGBTQ+ students are facing, what supports are enhancing their learning opportunities, and what strategies school personnel can enact to help ensure LGBTQ+ students thrive in school. An extensive Q&A session with the student panel will be included in this workshop, so come prepared with questions and be ready to listen and learn. A foundational understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression is recommended, but not required.
