Laying the Foundation: Understanding the Identities and Experiences of LGBTQ+ Students in Michigan

November 18, 2020 (8:00 am - 9:30 am)

Link to Register


Did you know that one in eight students in Michigan Public High Schools identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender (LGBT)? Having a foundational understanding of who LGBTQ+ students are and what they are experiencing in Michigan schools is critical to supporting their health, well being, and academic achievement. In this interactive webinar, participants will discuss key identities related to sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and accompanying terms. We will also seek to understand their daily lived experiences by examining Michigan-specific and national data. This workshop will help provide a foundational understanding for school personnel who want to support LGBTQ+ students and their families.
