PRIDE & Prejudice: Allyship for LGBTQ+ Youth in Libraries


Outright Vermont is a statewide non-profit whose mission is to build healthy, safe, and supportive environments for queer, trans, and question youth up to age 22. In this workshop, we will come together for activities and conversations about how to make your library more affirming for all youth. We will: 1) Review terms, definitions, and concepts related to gender and sexual identity. 2) Learn tips and strategies for creating an inclusive library environment. 3) Increase empathy and awareness of current realities for LGBTQ+ youth.
