Renata Sanders, M. Errol Lamont Fields, M. All parents want what's best for their kids. But providing support isn't always easy — especially if you are the parent of a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning LGBTQ child. In many ways no different from their peers, LGBTQ youth face some unique challenges that parents often feel unprepared to tackle.
LGBT Youth Resources
Positive environments are important to help all youth thrive. On this page, find resources from the CDC, other government agencies, and community organizations for LGBT Youth, their friends, educators, parents, and family members to support positive environments. Some LGBT youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience negative health and life outcomes. It is critical for the parents, guardians, and other family members of LGBT youth to have access to the resources they need to ensure their LGBT children are protected and supported. Because some LGBT youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience bullying or other aggression in school, it is important that educators, counselors, and school administrators have access to resources and support to create a safe, healthy learning environment for all students.
The Proud Trust is now operating digitally, as we make significant changes to how we operate in this time of international concern. All youth groups and s face-to-face contact are not running in their usual venues and are being delivered virtually instead. Our face to face training is also postponed, but some courses have moved virtual.
