Parenting LGBTQ Youth Workshop:

This two-session series will guide discussions around how parents can better support their LGBTQ youth.  These workshops go well beyond providing information; they challenge stigma and stereotypes, create networking opportunities and feature parent and youth guest speakers to share their stories.

See the poster for locations, dates and times.
