BC’s LGBTQ+ Youth Forum – Burnaby, BC – October 19, 2018
The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity, in partnership with Burnaby School District 41, will provide an LGBTQ+ Youth Forum to local high school students in the Fall of 2018.
We understand the importance of providing knowledge, tools and skills for youth to navigate through their secondary school experiences. Having access to workshops that provide education on inclusivity can help students normalize their feelings, identities and relationships. We will cover topics such as LGBTQ+ Terminology, Transgender Inclusivity, LGBTQ+ History, Healthy Relationships, Arts-Based Workshops, and other various topics that cover the intersection of identities in the LGBTQ+ community.
This year’s forum will include a Post-Forum Reception/Get-Together at the end of the day, where youth can interact and network with other students attending the forum. There will be ice-breaker style activities and games to take part in, helping youth build connections with other LGBTQ2+ and allied students who are passionate about building inclusive communities.
This event is taking place on the Provincial Professional Development Day and will also include workshops specifically for educators, helping them to continue providing an inclusive learning environment for all students.
