Youth Summit 2022: LGBTQ+ Visibility
It’s back! Our annual LGBTQ+ Youth Summit (for ages 13-17) is coming up soon. 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.
Metro Inclusive Health hosts this event in partnership with 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.
With that in mind, our theme for 2022 is LGBTQ+ Visibility.
Workshops will include:
- LGBTQ+ History
- The Art of Drag
- Safer Sex
- Poetry and Precision of Language
- Date Safe: Teen Dating Violence in LGBTQ+ youth
- LGBTQ Ableism and Intersectionality
- Banned Books
The day’s events will also include raffle prizes, and a film screening from the Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (TIGLFF) during lunch.
The deadline to register is April 8, 2022.
