The project’s key goals are to (1) provide sexual, mental, physical, and social health education and (2) support and empower participating youth to be change agents in their own lives and the lives of their peers. For some time now, iSMSS has been offering supports to trans-spectrum youth through our Family Resilience Project. The CHEW Project complements this work to abet trans youth health and wellbeing. What is particularly new for iSMSS is the project’s focus on MSM youth who comprise a key needs group.
iSMSS celebrates the vibrant diversity of our campuses by recognizing and supporting
important and collective efforts in creating welcoming, inclusive, safe, and respectful environments for sexual and gender minority students, faculty, staff, and allies.
Sexual and gender minorities represents an evolving constellation of identities including, but not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*,asexual, two-spirit, intersex, questioning, and queer.
