This EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable, facilitated by Joselyn Parker and Equity Fellow Dr. Mollie Blackburn, will be a place to discuss problems LGBTQ students of Color experience being marked as Black or Brown 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 youth of Color, 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.
