Whether it’s your first day or you’re starting your last year of high school, you have the right to feel safe, embraced, and included. On our Youth Resources page, you’ll find some helpful things from Qmunity’s Terms Glossary to a manual that details how to setup and maintain a Gender and Sexuality Alliance made by our friends at CALL Out. Additionally, here are some other things to help make your school a better place this year: Book an Out in Schools presentation (Obviously!) Check to see if your school district has a Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Policy. These policies should both ensure your protection and inclusion. Not every school district in BC has one. In 2016, gender identity or expression were added among the protected grounds of discrimination in British Columbia’s Human Rights Code. It’s important to understand your rights! Erase Bullying is a website set up by the BC Ministry of Education for you to learn about bullying and also offers an anonymous and confidential online reporting tool for students to report bullying incidents. Representation is important! Order some posters from Our City of Colours to increase the diversity seen in your hallways and classrooms. Order Rainbow Stickers for your classrooms from the BC Teacher’s Federation to show where LGBT2Q+ students can go if they need a safe space. No matter how you identify, you can learn about being a better ally.
