Come to learn more about LGBTQ issues and identities with a Tracy McKay of Greater Boston PFLAG, an organization whose mission is to provide support for families with LGBTQ youth.

This event will provide context about what LGBTQ youth are facing as well as define terms such as gender identity, sexual orientation, and gender expression. We will also delve more deeply into transgender identities and learn how to be allies.
