Supporting LGBTQ+ Students

February 21, 2018 in inQueery

Supporting LGBTQ+ Students A far from comprehensive list of methods and resources for supporting students that belong to the LGBTQ+ community, and modeling correct behaviors for other students to become allies. I was in middle school the first time I witnessed a friend (I will call him David) being mocked because someone said he was gay. In groups of four, we turned short stories into skits.

September 25, 2017 in inQueery

Hello! Here is September’s Queer & Present, a quick rundown of LGBTQIA+ news and my take on it.     Oakland Pride on Sept. 10 attended by thousands The annual event, a parade from City Hall to 20th and Broadway, garnered thousands of attendees in celebration of Oakland and the East Bay’s queer community. The event was started in 1997, was discontinued in 2004, and restarted in 2008. Far from the hectic festivities of the San Francisco Pride, Oakland Pride is more of a laid-back. “I…

On Two Spectrums: Autism and Queerness

August 9, 2017 in inQueery

There is plenty of overlap in those who are queer and those who are on the autism spectrum. This is especially true for those who identify as trans. There is a distinct subculture within the community of those who have autism. When you look at the demographics, it’s not surprising that there would be.
