Virtual LGBTQ+ Youth Summit 2021
Metro Inclusive Health is proud to host our 7th Annual LGBTQ+ Youth Summit, to be held virtually on March 5th, 6th, and 7th. The LGBTQ+ Youth Summit is an annual, free conference that provides information on Health, Education, and Empowerment so that LGBTQ+ youth leave knowing that they belong and have an important voice in the community.
Due to the virtual platform and the accessibility of resources during these times, this summit will be open up to any LGBTQ+ youth ages 13 to 17 who wish to attend, especially important to those in rural communities or those who do not have usually have access to networks of support.
Our theme for 2021 is “Advocacy. Antiracism. Resilience.”
Metro Inclusive Health hosts this event in partnership with our Pasco, Pinellas, and Hillsborough County school districts, Equality Florida and GLSEN Tampa Bay to combat the discrimination LGBTQ+ young people still face in school, at home and within their community.
Attendees are made aware of the support and resources locally in the Tampa Bay area as well as nationally. Through community involvement, we inspire young leaders and work toward an inclusive future.
