Panel on Queer youth

The Ohio State University
Zoom (Details forthcoming)
I will join the EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable panel discussion, facilitated by Joselyn Parker, which will be a place to discuss problems LGBTQ Black students experience being marked as Black in a white supremacist society—and being marked as queer in a hetero/cisnormative society. Together, we will talk about what queerness, homophobia, and transphobia look like among Black youth, and reflect upon consequences. We will offer recommendations for what teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders can do to disrupt homophobia and transphobia in their school communities.
