Session Description: I Am Me: Understanding the Intersections of Gender, Sexuality, and Identity is an educational training video exploring the challenges that LGBTQ+ young people face, and how adults can be supportive allies. The 46-minute video defines the concepts of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, and provides an in-depth picture of how LGBTQ+ young people are marginalized in their everyday lives and the serious outcomes they face as a result. With personal stories from LGBTQ+ young people and adult advocates woven throughout, the main theme of adult allyship is exemplified through LGBTQ+ youth sharing how they need to be supported. Facilitated discussion follows the viewing.
