How LGBTQ+ Students Approach a New School Year

School. It’s where we’re supposed to learn, where we’re supposed to be safe. Where we should hope to be seen and encouraged in our fullness, unfortunately, many factors make it difficult for LGBTQ+ students to consider school a haven. In many ways, the K-12 experience serves as a microcosm for the dangers, rejection, and discrimination that LGBTQ+ people often face throughout their lives. Here at The Center, we’re all too familiar with these challenges, and are determined to reverse the trend.

Donate a new backpack or school supplies by Friday, August 25th — you can drop them right off at the Center.

Join us at our Back to School Bash, presented in partnership with Live Out Loud, on Friday, September 15, and encourage a youth you know to attend.
