LGBTQAI+ Equity Strategies

We are committed to creating a safe and affirming environment where all young people can thrive, no matter their sexual orientation or gender-identity and expression. The Office of Equity Strategies LGBTQAI+ unit raises awareness and helps make sure that all our services are affirming of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, agender, intersex youth and families.
