The Denver community has come together to create this resource-filled toolkit in response to concerns raised by Denver LGBTQ+ youth. Youth have lived experiences that show how necessary it is for adults who work with queer youth to provide more informed, compassionate and affirming support.
According to the 2019 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS):
- 46.3% of students reported being bullied because of their sexual identity in the last 12 months
- 9.4% of students reported being bullied because of their gender identity in the last 12 months
Together with LGBTQ+ youth, a group of committed adults from the Denver community created this comprehensive toolkit.
Thank you for taking the time to look through this resource and apply the information where you are able.
Youth asked us, as adults, to do better. We must.
