LGBTQ Youth

Challenges faced by LGBTQ youth are changing, but what they always need is support from each other and the adults in their lives.

For HRC's resources for educators, please visit WelcomingSchools.org. To learn about our annual gathering of LGBTQ youth-serving professionals, visit TimetoThrive.org.

Being supported at home, in school and in the community is important for all children and youth – especially 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 support.
