LGBTQ+ Youth in Massachusetts: Are the Kids Really Alright?

Thursday, April 15, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Date & Time: April 15 from 3PM to 4PM

Participants will have an opportunity to learn more about JBCC’s Evidence-Based Policy Institute and our current work focused on improving outcomes for LGBTQ+ youth and their families.

Massachusetts has long been a leader in gender- and sexual-identity equality and inclusion. So why, despite the Commonwealth’s significant social, political and financial investments are LGBTQ+ youth, and LGBTQ+ youth of color in particular, continuing to experience disproportionate negative outcomes including homelessness, substance use, and suicide? What can be done at the policy, systems and community levels to promote the best possible outcomes for LGBTQ+ youth?
