Rainbow Warriors: Queer & Trans Youth Resiliency

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We are tired of only hearing about queer and trans youth as victims, so we put together a playlist of resources and stories about our resilience. Learn how we are shifting the narrative around queer and trans youth through videos, music, poetry and visual art. Create your own resiliency project. You will leave with a new perspective on queer and trans youth identity.
