Project Title: Synchronizing Research, Policymaking, and Practice to Assist Sexual and Gender Minority Youth to Grow into Resilience.
Motivation and Core Goal: In Canada, sexual and gender minority (SGM) youth, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer Indigenous, and intersexual youth, are a multivariate population across race, ethnocultural location, and other relational differences. They comprise a particularly vulnerable group that continues to be involved in a paradoxical struggle to be cared about in education and other caring institutions.
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.
