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.
