Being supported at home, in school and in the community is important for all children and youth – especially lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. From creating an inclusive learning environment for students – whether a student is in the process of transitioning or she has two moms – to understanding the challenges and resiliency of LGBTQ youth, HRC provides a wealth of resources for supporting LGBTQ youth.
HRC Foundation’s Welcoming Schools is an LGBT-inclusive approach to addressing family diversity, gender stereotyping and bulling in K-5 schools.
National Foster Care Month
This May, HRC is proud to celebrate National Foster Care Month. Throughout the month, HRC, in partnership with FosterClub, will highlight the issues facing LGBTQ youth in foster care and the families and organizations that work to support them.
Support for LGBT Youth
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth and their families.
Transgender Children & Youth
HRC is committed to providing the kinds of resources children, families and other youth-serving professionals need to support one another in their journeys.
Teen Dating Violence
As difficult as it may be to admit, LGBT people – including LGBTQ youth – can be and are perpetrators of violence as well as its victims, and too often, that violence occurs in the context of romantic and/or sexual relationships. The limited data available on LGBTQ teen dating violence shows significantly higher rates of dating violence among LGB youth than among non-LGB youth and transgender youth reported the highest rates of dating violence.
