School breaks can be challenging for LGBTQ+ youth and families, as it can mean spending time with non-affirming community or family members.
A report by the Human Rights Council (HRC) found that:
- 67% of LGBTQ youth heard their families make negative comments about LGBTQ people
- Only 24% report they can “definitely” be themselves as an LGBTQ person at home
LGBTQ Student Services team has gathered resources and lesson plans to help LGBTQ+ students and families think through staying safe and feeling affirmed during this time.
