In alignment with the SCCOE’s mission and vision, this Guide is available to help support LGBTQ Persons, School districts, families, allies, and community members. The LGBTQ Information & Resource Guide provides a vehicle to start the conversation, as we educate ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing LGBTQ youth. Its contents have been culled from government agencies, community organizations for LGBTQ Youth, and educators with the intent to support positive environments while offering various ways to promote advocacy, change attitudes, and to create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ.
