On one hand we can't ask too much of teachers or students, but we still want to make sure our LGBTQ youth are supported, in schools and at home. Similarly, we want to make sure everyone is safe, healthy and cared for in ways we have little control over. It can feel impossibly difficult and frustrating.
We hope that whatever circumstance you find yourself in, that you are able to find care, rest and community. As teachers and educators, and as members of the LGBTQ community we have always come together to heal and resist. And although we may be apart in some ways, we are still a part of a community of people who want our youth to thrive and can do that in small, meaningful ways.
