Webinar: Explore GLSEN Research Institute's Students of Color Reports

Schools nationwide are often hostile environments for LGBTQ youth of color, where they experience racism, homophobia, and transphobia. In addition, many LGBTQ do not have access to in-school resources that may improve school climate and students’ experiences, including GSAs, ethnic/cultural clubs, supportive educators, and inclusive curriculum.

That's why the GLSEN Research Institute released a series of research reports exploring the experiences of AAPI, Black, Latinx, and Native & Indigenous LGBTQ youth. The series, Erasure and Resilience: The Experiences of LGBTQ Students of Color, is a series of four research reports that examines the school experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI)BlackLatinx, and Native and Indigenous LGBTQ youth. These reports were developed by the GLSEN Research Institute, in partnership with the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC)National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA)Unidos USHispanic Federation, and the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY).

GLSEN’s recent research reports on LGBTQ Youth of Color highlight the importance of school-based supports that address students facing racism as well as homophobia and transphobia. Join members of GLSEN’s Educator Advisory Committee as they share policies and practices for centering students of color in LGBTQ advocacy and the importance of this work for current online education.
