Affirm LGBTQ+ Young People by Creating Inclusive Learning Spaces

It is imperative to provide inclusive education because, as GLSEN’s Executive Director, Melanie Willingham-Jaggers, emphasizes, “Accurate and inclusive lessons not only affirm LGBTQ+ students, but also give non-LGBTQ+ students clear information about the diverse world around them and help prepare all young people to navigate and contribute to a multicultural society.”

To uplift Transgender Awareness Week, we highlight this Learning for Justice magazine Why I Teach piece by educator Skye Tooley, who emphasizes the power of LGBTQ+ visibility in fostering positive spaces of understanding and empathy where all students feel visible and accepted.
