impacting our youth and their families

LGBTQIA+ youth continue to face a wide range of challenges and issues that can negatively impact their mental health, well-being, and overall quality of life. Some of the most common issues facing LGBTQIA+ youth today include discrimination, harassment, and bullying, which can occur at school, in the workplace, and in other social settings.

To address these issues, it is important to promote inclusivity and support for LGBTQIA+ youth, provide access to resources and support services, and work to create safe and welcoming communities for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
