Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ Youth During a Pandemic
June 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Exploring the impact of COVID-19 on 2SLGBTQ+ youth, we will outline barriers and offer suggestions to increase accessibility.
We will provide strategies that can help providers engage, create, and maintain healthy and supportive relationships, that
increase resilience and decrease isolation for youth. We will provide inclusive language suggestions, especially around bodies and pregnancy.
Speaker – DENE GUILLAS
Dene (he/him) proudly identifies as an Indigenous, transgender man who has always lived and worked on Treaty One Territory, the territories of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dene, Dakota and Métis Nations.
He has been lucky enough to be involved in the training and education field for over 15 years. Whether it was in a classroom environment, community centre, conference, or small gatherings, he has always tried to make sure learning is inclusive to everyone.
His love of helping others has led him to Rainbow Resource Centre in 2019, where he works as the School Equity & Inclusion Coordinator. This has allowed his passion of interacting and speaking to others to turn into a way to give back to the community. Helping to raise awareness for our youth has given him a purpose that is extremely close to his heart.
