“I Am Me”: LGBTQ+ Youth Panel
“I Am Me: Understanding the Intersections of Gender, Sexuality, and Identity” is an educational training video exploring the challenges that LGBTQ+ young people face, and how adults can be supportive allies. The video defines the concepts of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, and provides an in-depth picture of how LGBTQ+ young people are marginalized in their everyday lives and the serious outcomes they face as a result. With personal stories from LGBTQ+ young people and adult advocates woven throughout, the main theme of adult allyship is exemplified through LGBTQ+ youth sharing how they need to be supported. Panel of LGBTQ+ youth to follow video.

About this workshop series:
Often, we don’t act when we see someone harassed or bullied – simply because we don’t know what to do.
This FREE six-session workshop series is intended to provide you with the information, skills, and resources to put your allyship into action! Join us for just one or all six sessions!
Workshops are designed toward adults who work with young people, but are open to all, ages 13+. Please come fragrance free!
This workshop series is sponsored by the Envision Fund of Santa Fe Community Foundation and the New Mexico Safe Schools Initiative.
