LGBTQIA+ 101: An Introduction to LGBTQIA+ Identities and Allyship

June 5 @ 7:00 pm

Wednesday, June 5th at 7pm via Zoom

In Thriving Youth Darien’s 2023 survey of Darien 6th-12th graders, LGBTQ+ youth reported significantly lower rates of connectedness to youth in school, adults outside of school and the community where they live. They also reported significantly higher rates of depression and anxiety, leading to a heightened risk for substance use. Having adults in their lives who are supportive and accepting of LGBTQIA+ youth is a protective factor!

Join us to learn about the LGBTQIA+ community and how to create more welcoming and supportive spaces with your family and friends. Zoom presentation by educator and community organizer Justin Zeigler; program brought to you by Thriving Youth Darien, The Depot, and Lighthouse, a program from Kids in Crisis. Register at
