Trust, Compassion, and Boundaries: Holding Space for LGBTQ+ Youth in Sexuality and Consent
An experiential presentation that provides a space for participants to explore the connection between supporting LGBTQ+ Youth and personal concepts of identity, trust, and consent. Each participant will be provided with an opportunity to create an art piece that acknowledges both the self that we share, and the self we sustain in our innermost worlds. Through this distinctive exploration, participants will be encouraged to discuss the interconnectedness of Trust, Compassion, and Boundaries in facilitating meaningful conversation on sexual wellness and healthy consent with LGBTQ+ Youth and families.
