In order to effectively teach and care for young people of all identities, adults working with children and adolescents need to have a firm grasp on what it means to be a part of marginalized communities and how to best serve those members. 

In this presentation on how to best support 2SLGBTQ youth, participants will be introduced to the foundations of identity, terminology, inclusive language/proper pronoun use, and affirming practices to implement within the classroom, like creating a gender neutral environment. 

Participants will also be led through group discussions that center around school systems (e.g., presence of gender neutral washrooms), policy (e.g., gendered physical education), and 2SLGBTQ safety (e.g., transphobia/homophobia. Resources will also be provided.
