Despite growing numbers of youth openly disclosing that they identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ)* during their school-age years, LGBTQ* youth remain a vulnerable population across the nation. That’s why we have created this tipsheet series for adult professionals who work with youth. These products address how to create a safe(r), friendly environment in multiple settings by intentionally practicing LGBTQ* inclusivity.

*As a measure of inclusivity, we use the acronym LGBTQ* to include all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions. We understand that identities are not limited to the terms represented by the letters in this acronym and aim to be representative of the entirety of identities across the queer spectrum.
