Supporting LGBTQ Youth of Color
Schools nationwide can be hostile environments for LGBTQ youth of color, where they experience racism, homophobia, and transphobia. In addition, many LGBTQ do not have access to in-school resources that may improve school climate and students’ experiences, including GSAs, ethnic/cultural clubs, supportive educators, and inclusive curriculum. Visit GLSEN’s website to explore their collection of research reports exploring the experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islander, Black, Latinx, and Native & Indigenous LGBTQ youth.

CCC&Y Weekly Newsletter Update for June 2, 2021

Hope is our motivator. Hope fuels our striving for a good life for ourselves and all others. We have to visualize it. What do you hope for yourself, family, neighbors, and community? For me, it is simply feeling connected. Having at least one go-to person that I can know without a doubt, we share genuine and reciprocal care for each other.

Having friends with common interests is great. We can enjoy each other’s company, learn through each other’s experiences, and share common interests. In these friendships, there is ease and comfort in sharing challenges, sadness, and even anger. We are there for each other to support child care or household chores. We share time during walks in the woods, bike rides, and concerts. We share meals and partake in each other’s celebrations.
