A Student Shared their SOGIE with me - What now?

  • This is a huge sign of trust from a youth and even if they can’t express their gratitude for you right now, please know how important your support is!

  • Connect the student to community support resources ie. local Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) or see Identity’s support page 

  • Check out the educational resources on this page to become more informed!

  • Advocate for 2SLGBTQ+ students ie. get involved with GSA, testify at school board meetings, create space for queer & trans* student voices to be heard

  • A few reminders:

    • Be mindful of not sharing with others how the youth identifies unless you have checked with them first.

    • You aren’t alone! There are many amazing groups and resources to support you and the youth.
