This EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable, facilitated by Joselyn Parker, will be a place to discuss problems LGBTQ Black students experience being marked as Black in a white supremacist society—and being marked as queer in a hetero/cisnormative society. Together, we will talk about what queerness, homophobia, and transphobia look like among Black youth, and reflect upon consequences. We will offer recommendations for what teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders can do to disrupt homophobia and transphobia in their school communities.
