Queer Town Hall: Showing Up For LGBTQ Youth
Tune in this Tuesday, May 19, at 6 p.m. on YouTube Live (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3Ysdy2naNg) for our live captioned Queer Town Hall discussing how LGBTQ youth are showing up for one another and how we can show up for them.
As COVID-19 has closed schools and required people to stay at home, many youth have had to shelter in situations that are not affirming, in addition to experiencing higher rates of houselessness and living in foster care. As a result, connecting in creative, virtual ways, along with increased access to resources, has become more important than ever. Tune in to hear from our panelists about the work they’re doing with LGBTQ youth and how we can support them:
-Jenn Burleton (She/her) Program Director, TransActive Gender Project
-Elliott Hinkle, BS (They/Them/Theirs) Youth/Young Adult Coordinator, Healthy Transitions at Portland State University
-Seth Johnstone (He/Him) LGBTQ Engagement and Education Specialist, SMYRC
-Lindsay Hyland (She/Her), Housing Case Manager, Outside In
-Aryn Zanca (They/Them), Program Manager, The Living Room for LGBTQ Youth
-Monica K.A. Moran, MS, (She/Her), Program Analyst, Oregon Youth Authority
