Building Community to Support LGBTQIA+ Youth: An Interactive Discussion for Parents and Guardians

  • Ottoson School 63 Acton Street Arlington, MA, 02476 United States (map)

Do you wonder how to create a home that celebrates clear communication between youth and their families about sexuality and gender? We will create a space to explore these questions and learn about the resources in our community to affirm all of the children in our schools. Together we’ll explore what gender and sexuality mean today and places to find role models of varied backgrounds for us and those in our care. We’ll also delve into ways to process our feelings about youth development and the risks they take to be themselves in ways that nurture healthy communication, good boundaries, and trust. Parents, guardians and support networks are all invited on this journey with us.

This program will be led by members of the Arlington Rainbow Commission and LexPride.
