Queering the Conversation: Equity, Inclusion and the LGBTQIA+ Experience in 2021

This presentation considers the necessary work of equity and inclusion for LGBTQIA+ youth in a secondary boarding school. We will detail our experiences launching affinity spaces, creating a LGBTQIA+ policy committee and navigating our own responsibilities and experiences as queer DEIJ practitioners supporting the queer student community. Participants will be challenged to think critically about the contemporary issues facing our LGBTQIA+ students surrounding residential life, athletic programming, and sharing their identities in boarding school communities.
