We are becoming increasingly aware of the true diversity our school community holds. In discovering this true diversity many institutional barriers and internalized biases are showing in explicit and hidden ways. The school climate and policies can prevent the wider acceptance and celebration of individuals at all levels of the school community. By reflecting on personal prejudice and recognizing and addressing inappropriate interactions and policies, we can transform the school culture to truly embrace and affirm LGBTQ+ identities and address the intersectionalities that lie with it!

I enjoyed the webinar a lot.

I felt there is more information out there that would be helpful in the classroom. This felt more like a defensive and argumentative session. Keep putting it together. We will get there.

Simply excellent, relevant, and much needed for our students and colleagues. We learn vocabulary in order to understand the finer points of any topic, so being fluent in LGBTQA+ issues is critically important for adults if we consider ourselves educators.
